Youth Get It ™ Education Awards FAQ
You are welcome to apply for both, but there are some conditions. First of all, the Beth Hutchinson Award is awarded only to students from the Surrey School District. You must also meet the criteria for both awards: have overcome adversity (Standing Tall), and exemplify a commitment to continue your education in the face of considerable health challenges (Beth Hutchinson). To make a double application, just check both boxes on the application form).
While you can apply for both, you are not permitted to receive both awards. Your school district selection committee will determine the award recipients for your district, and will make the decision about which award to present.
