scholarship winners and superintendents

The summer student workforce is the lifeblood of Ontario Parks’ summer operating season. Our provincial parks simply could not function without our student workers.

Today, Minister Rod Phillips, local MPPs, park staff, corporate partners, and of course our wonderful students gathered in Peterborough to award the 2018 Ontario Parks Partner Scholarships.

He Ontario Parks Partner Scholarship was established in 2000 by several Ontario Parks corporate partners to recognize students who excel in their jobs at Ontario Parks. The $500 awards recognize the innovation and leadership of young people working in Ontario’s provincial parks.

Our 2018 winners received praise for their roles as mentors, educators and innovators. Whether they were administering first aid, managing recycling programs or sharing the park’s history and heritage with visitors, each student went above and beyond to earn their nomination.

Special congratulations to Lili Paradi, who received the Amber Booth Award

2018 Amber Booth Award Winner

This award carries special recognition for fellows whose efforts excel in the areas of health, safety and well-being.

On numerous occasions, Lili helped campers with mobility issues navigate Killbear’s trails, contributing to positive visitor experiences. Lili also helped reunite a lost child with her parents, demonstrating a calm and professional demeanor throughout the incident.

Without the support of the following partners, the scholarship program would not be possible

Since 2000, our corporate partners have provided more than $250,000 to our students.

Many thanks to our 2018 partners!

This song by our “Singing Superintendent” Scott Thomas commemorates all of the incredible work and passion our summer students bring to the parks:

Congratulations to all of our 2018 winners!
