The Woodridge Achievement Award commemorates the student who possesses a spirit of enthusiasm, and inspires others to achieve more by living an inclusive life in their community through volunteering, sports and activities while being a role model to their peers.

“True role models are those who possess the qualities that we would like to have and those who have affected us in a way that makes us want to be better people”

We proudly present this award in honour of their outstanding achievement for the advocacy of others with down syndrome in their community.

The 2015 award winner will be announced soon. Please join us in congratulating the 2014 winner.
