Grade 6 and 7 students from Sowchea Elementary School in Fort St. James are being honoured with a Ministry of Justice Community Safety and Crime Prevention Award in the Children or Youth Leadership category.

These awards recognize groups and citizens who stand up to crime in their communities to improve safety for all British Columbians.

After the tragic death of Nolan Alexis on November 4, 2011 in Fort St. James as a result of a motor vehicle accident, grade 6 and 7 students at Sowchea Elementary School organized the “Be Seen Be Safe” project to distribute reflective bracelets to every child in Fort St. James, and in the Nak’azdli, Tl’azten, and Yekoochee First Nations.
