PRESS RELEASE University
Announcing the finalists for the Forces AVENIR University Program

Québec City, 9 July 2012 – It is with a renewed sense of joy that Mr. François Grégoire, the organization’s President and CEO, proudly presents the finalists for the 2012 Forces AVENIR University Program.          

Once again this year, these Forces AVENIR student finalists have set themselves apart in an exceptional manner through their involvement while seriously and rigorously pursuing their studies. Contending in eleven different categories, including arts, literature and culture, entrepreneurship, mutual aid and justice, the environment, heath and sports, science, and communications, as well as the committed undergraduate and graduate student categories, the Forces AVENIR finalists have shown just how important commitment is to them. It was after examining numerous application files and conducting some forty interviews that twenty-one projects and twelve individuals were selected for the excellence and passion they exhibited.

During the Forces AVENIR Gala hosted by Grégory Charles, which will be held at the Théâtre Capitole de Québec in Québec City on October 2, thirteen university students will be presented with an AVENIR trophy, Forces AVENIR’s signature token of recognition and commitment. Parents, friends, dignitaries, partners and members of the business and university communities will gather to celebrate and more importantly pay tribute to all these students who have provided a beacon of hope for the future. A number of honorary grants, totalling over $114,000, will also be awarded.

These role models of commitment are undeniably our greatest source of pride! We realize that you too must be eager to promote their achievements in your own milieu. As such, Forces AVENIR will be happy to provide you with photos or additional information about the finalists. You are also invited to visit our website at www.forcesavenir.qc.ca. Please also find enclosed a list of all the finalists for the 2012 Forces AVENIR University Program.

Forces AVENIR is a non-profit organization that aims to recognize, honour and promote the social commitment and enterprising spirit of young people in projects which enrich knowledge, arouse the desire for success and surpassing oneself, encourage the development of community thinking and thus contribute to the development of socially conscious, active and responsible leaders who are both dedicated to their community and open to the world.
