Grandparent of the Year

Grandparent of the Year 2024

For the past 36 years, Community Care has encouraged children to recognize a Grandparent, Elder, or a special older person in their life as "Grandparent of the Year." Every year we are amazed by the stories we receive. This year, we’re pleased to open entries to children in grade 1 through grade 6. Our Title Sponsor of Grandparent of the Year 2024 is The Gardens of Peterborough.

Over the years, many of the honorees have indeed been grandparents or great grandparents of the students; however, there have been a number of entries that highlight a special senior friend or an Elder who has shared their knowledge with the child.

We accept entries in both English and French. A committee selects one winner and one honourable mention from each group of grades; primary and junior. Primary is Grades 1, 2 & 3. Junior is Grades 4, 5, & 6.

All entries must be received by May 7, 2024 by mail, email, or online submission (Jotform link below). 

The awards ceremony will take place in early June at the Peterborough Public Library.
