Helen Caldwell History Prize
The Burlington Historical Society recognizes Helen Caldwell and her bequest from her estate.
In honour of Helen Caldwell's contribution, the Society has created an award for a deserving Burlington high school student.
The prize will be awarded annually to the graduating student with the highest achievement in Grade 12 history, who embodies a passion and curiosity for the subject, as determined by the Principal of the selected High School.
The prize will rotate among Burlington high schools, once per year starting with the eldest, Central High School, then the next eldest through a rotation.
2012 Central High School - Olivia Pare
2013 Nelson High School - Kyle Daines
2014 Aldershot High School - To be determined
2015 High School - To be determined
It is our aim to infuse the next generation of Burlingtonians with interest in the heritage and culture of their city in honour of Helen Caldwell.
