The J. Estelle Reddin Memorial Award.

Beginning in academic 2011/12, an annual award of $500 will be granted to a student in the Family and Nutritional Science Program at UPEI who meets the following criteria:

* A student entering 3rd or 4th year who is in good academic standing

* A student who has displayed an aptitude for and interest in the food component of the Foods and nutrition program (i.e. food ways, food and culture, access to food, etc.)

* A student who has demonstrated respect for diversity and empathy for others.

The recipient will be recommended by the Chair of the Department of Family and Nutritional Sciences in consultation with faculty members and approved by the UPEI Scholarships & Awards Committee. In the event of equally qualified candidates, financial need will be considered.

Approximately $10,000 needs to be raised to fund the award in perpetuity. If there are others you know that would be interested in helping with this fund raising, please pass along the message.

Those who wish to contribute to this award should contact the representative of the PEI Home Economics Association, Heather Henry MacDonald at 902-569-2391.

The first recipient of this award is Belinda Jenkins of Stratford. Congratulations Belinda!
