Every year, more than 1100 organizations and thousands of employees support a United Way workplace campaign. While all are vital to creating real and lasting change in our community, some campaigns and volunteers stand out for exceptional community spirit, team spirit and spirit of generosity.
United Way’s annual Spirit Awards celebrate and recognize these people and organizations.
2013 Best in Show
Best in Show celebrates workplace campaigns with imagination, creativity, originality and flair. Nominees from A.E. Wright Community School and Tundra Oil and Gas Ltd. were spirited competitors, but the final prize went to Deer Lodge Centre for an array of events, including a Trivia Night that was anything but trivial. In fact it was so successful, organizers plan to make it a campaign staple in coming years.
2013 Workplace Canvasser Awards
University of Manitoba – Extended Education and Via Rail Canada captured awards for passionate employee volunteers and United Way ambassadors who inspired higher-than-average participation among co-workers.
