Chinook Gate and Airdrielife magazine are looking for Airdrie's Awesome Kids. 

The second annual Awesome Kids Awards Nominations are open now and close on September 15th. 

Sherry Shaw-Frogget says they are really looking for kids that set the pace in their day to day lives. 

"We are looking for kids that are role models to their generation, they demonstrate loyalty, courage and determination. Really it's any child that has qualities that make you think our future is in good hands." 

Last year 11 Airdrie youth were recognized in the 2017 awards. 

"The first year went so well, we had 11 recipients and I'll tell you it was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in the 15 years of publishing the magazine. There was one little guy in the studio that was just vibrating he was so excited and he just looks at me and says this is one of the coolest things I have ever done"

Each child was featured in the magazine, celebrated at a family-focused party and had $50 dollars donated in their name to a charity of their choosing. 

Nominations for the 2018 Awesome Kids can be found here.
