Athabasca Student Dinner
Posted on March 10, 2021 in People. Tags:
The Athabasca Student Dinner is an annual event that recognizes the efforts and celebrates the achievements of Athabasca residents who are studying in the south. ABD and Points Athabasca have been hosting a student dinner annually for many years, with support from numerous companies that donate prizes each year. Last year’s event had grown to over 250 guests attending and 70 students.
Due to Covid, the event went virtual this year. A draw for prizes was held on December 15 on a Live Facebook event with 97 people attending. We asked students to submit a video before the deadline. We put together a compilation that has over 60,000 views so far! This is by far our most popular post to date. You can view this video on ABD’s Facebook page.
Big thank you to all the sponsors who helped by donating prizes! Cameco, Athabasca Basin Security, Team Drilling, Points North, Graham Group, West Wind Aviation, Tru North, Arctic Beverages, Orano, QM Points, Flyer Electric, Transwest Air, Ya’ thi Néné, Long Lake Insurance, and Hands-on Outreach and Development.
