Faith Belcourt, a 12 year old student from the Saulteau First Nations in Northern BC won a $500 grand prize in Allteck’s logo contest.Allteck is a company that specializes in the maintenance and construction of power systems and is currently in the process of building two 500kV transmission power lines from the Site C dam to the Peace Canyon substation near Hudson’s Hope.
“We wanted to search for a logo for our crews at Site C that represented unity, togetherness, team work and equality. Allteck has over 50% Indigenous Inclusion for Site C consistently. It is important that we engage and include local First Nations and their members in everything that we do” says Geena Jackson our Vice President Indigenous Advancement and Business Development.
Faith was the youngest of 10 artists to submit a design to the contest with the next oldest artist being 29. A pizza party was thrown for Faith where representatives from Allteck,Chief Ken Cameron, 2 councilors from the Saulteau Nation, the Belcourt family and Faith’s class mates joined to recognize her and presented her with a $500 cheque. To accompany the grand prize we gave Faith a $100 art set and had her design put on hoodies, hats, and stickers.
At Allteck we believe that there is no small creator and with the right opportunity anyone can achieve anything. Congratulations Faith!
