Original Listing Follows – January 23, 2007 – NationTalk takes its role seriously when it comes to supporting First Nations across Canada. The communication agency wants to support its heroes, those who have accomplished so much for their communities.
As part of that support, NationTalk is giving the first Aboriginal oriented Not-For-Profit organization, including schools and First Nations, the opportunity to join NationTalk and attend the prestigious 2007 Aboriginal Achievement Awards, which will be held on Friday, March 16 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta.
An Aboriginal oriented Not-For-Profit will win four NationTalk donated tickets (Value $1,280) to attend the 2007 National Aboriginal Achievement Awards. The first completed form received by NationTalk on or after January 31st, 2007 at 12:00 PM EST will win the four premium seats. Transportation is not included.This event is a must see for all Aboriginals because of the calibre of the award recipients, the opportunity to meet and network with other First Nations peoples from across the country, and, perhaps most importantly, to share in the accomplishments of our peoples.
And prestigious it is. Fourteen outstanding achievers have been named as recipients of the 2007 Aboriginal Achievement Awards. They include the CEO of Canada’s winning 2010 Olympic bid, the producer of one of Canada’s longest-running TV series, a world-class diver and 11 other First Nations, Métis, and Inuit role models of people who converted their potential into success.
“The 2007 award winners are an amazing celebration of achievement,” says Roberta Jamieson, CEO of the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation. “We invite all Canadians to join us in recognizing these outstanding persons who have contributed so much to Canada and the world.
“The awards will be presented at the gala and will be televised on both Global and APTN.”
The Foundation is also delighted that Adam Beach, most recently seen in Flags of Our Fathers, will host the awards while Jennifer Podemski, a prominent producer, actor and writer, is the creative producer.
Juno award winners, Gemini-nominated actors, and a slate of talent that reads like the who’s who of Aboriginal Canadian entertainers will honour the recipients with performances at this, the 14th run of these award showcasing the best of Aboriginal culture.
The recipients are selected by a national jury comprised of past award recipients and individuals representing First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples from diverse geographic regions of Canada and areas of the economy.
The awards are produced by the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation, Canada’s leading Aboriginal charity dedicated to providing financial assistance to Aboriginal students for post-secondary education.
Since 1985, the Foundation has awarded more than $22 million in scholarships to deserving students across the country for all disciplines, including law, medicine, education, psychology, fine arts, business, and computer sciences.
The National Aboriginal Achievement Awards are generously supported by a number of private, and public sector sponsors.
