Western Legacy Awards

Western Legacy Awards are presented annually by the Western Legacy Committee of the Calgary Stampede to honour individuals and groups who have demonstrated significant achievement in promoting and preserving western values to create a better community for all.  Western values are defined as hospitality, commitment to community, pride of place and integrity.  These values are central to Calgary’s distinct identity both within our community and around the world.

The Awards recognize individuals and groups who live by these values and in doing so, make differences in their communities.  Whether working quietly behind the scenes or in the spotlight; or whether their hard work has affected the whole province, a region, a city, a town, or a single neighbourhood – what these individuals or groups have in common is their community spirit and their dedication to making positive contributions from which other people will benefit.

Nominations for the 2016 Western Legacy Awards are OPEN! Submit on-line in one of the four categories – Youth, Innovation, Individual Contribution or Group Contribution here.
