KidSport™ is a children’s charity dedicated to assisting children of families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport programs. We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial barriers that may exist. Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, hard work, dedication and self-confidence.

The Sharon Dickie Award
Kerigan, a Shaunavon High School student, is the daughter of Vince and Jillian Stevenson. She will be studying towards a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia in the fall.
Kerigan was chosen from several exceptional applicants who met the criteria of Love of Community, Passion, a Healthy Competitive Nature and a Team First Attitude.
Kerigan played several sports at SHS, including volleyball and basketball, and was also involved in a number of programs and organizations, including 4-H, SRC, Peer Support and her church.
Dickie family members developed the scholarship to give back to the youth of the community of Shaunavon, and to honour the efforts of Sharon, a former town council member and long-time mayor.
Committee members were once again impressed by the quality of candidates and the number of applicants, but were ultimately swayed by Kerigan's strong academic record and varied involvement.
"I am pleased that Kerigan has been chosen by the committee to receive this award," said Sharon. "Kerigan has always displayed her love of Shaunavon by representing her community and school in academics, sports and school council."
"Her leadership and faith is evidenced through her hard work and determination to play hard and fair," added Sharon. "Kerigan is committed to giving back by pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Sports Management. I commend her for attending Liberty University and I know success will follow her."
The award is unique in nature in that it is open to any Shaunavon and area youth, between the ages of 16 and 20, and can be applied to either nontraditional or traditional training in sport, fine arts and/or academics.
I've been very fortunate to watch these young people in our community grow up and develop into the wonderful adults that they have become," said Sharon. The award was officially presented to Kerigan during the SHS graduation ceremony on June 29th.
