Public service announcement - Funding available for youth environmental projects in Alberta



    CALGARY, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - If you're between the ages of 16 and 30 and want
to do something positive for Alberta's environment, the Alberta Youth
Environmental Stewardship Program can help you put your idea into action.
    The Alberta Youth Environmental Stewardship Program funds projects by
creative young people with a desire to help address environmental issues in
Alberta. Perhaps it's reducing pesticides or water use in your neighbourhood,
or improving the recycling program at your school. Or maybe you want to
educate your friends and community members about how they can help combat
climate change and save money.
    If you've got an idea and the energy to implement it, the Alberta Youth
Environmental Stewardship Program has up to $5000 to help you make it happen.
    It's not just about the environment. It's also about you. Successful
applicants will receive project management training and support, as well as
mentoring and guidance by experienced project managers and environmental
professionals. This is valuable training for aspiring teachers,
businesspeople, and community leaders.
    The application deadline for the Alberta Youth Environmental Stewardship
Program is February 1st, 2009. Visit www.albertaecotrust.com today to get more
