Vancouver’s Awards of Excellence

Last night, HASTe staff joined 131 other nominees at the Vancouver Playhouse theater for the City of Vancouver’s inaugural Awards of Excellence event.

The room was packed with the City’s best and brightest, people and organizations working to make Vancouver a better city for all. HASTe was nominated for our work with Vancouver’s schools in the category of Greenest City Leadership.

How did we do? Find out after the break.

Judy Graves and Jimmy Pattison were awarded the “Freedom of the City” for their life-long efforts on the City’s behalf, and dozens of youth, individuals and organizations were recognized for their work to make Vancouver a better place to work, live and be.

The award event was a fun night full of inspiring people and stories – here’s hoping it becomes and annual event! – but for us, well, it was an honor just to be nominated. For a full breakdown of who won what, head over the to Vancouver Sun’s coverage of the event.
