COVID-19 Update (04/24/20)
The safety of our youth participants and volunteers is of utmost importance to us. We’re following the COVID-19 situation carefully and will make a decision about running our summer programming on or before June 1st. Our nomination deadline has been extended to May 15th, and nominations will be saved for summer 2021 in the event that our programs are postponed.
The deadline to submit earn-your-way-back activities has also been extended to May 15th. In the meantime, please continue to practice social distancing to keep all of our loved ones safe!
Who is eligible?
Nominees must be girls or gender minorities between the ages of 9 – 18 and reside in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick.
How do I nominate someone?
You can either complete the form below and click submit, or download a hard copy of the nomination form here, fill it out, and e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15th.
Can I return for another program if I’ve participated before?
Yes! To be considered for another Terranaut Club program, you must complete an earn-your-way-back activity and then send us a short summary about what you accomplished and why you want to return.
*New for summer 2020: since we have so many participants who want to come back and only a limited number of seats for returning participants, completing an earn-your-way-back activity does not guarantee your seat.
When will I hear back?
Participants will be selected based on how well they suit our program’s mission, and everyone will be notified of our selection by June 6th. Preference is given to girls who come from underprivileged and/or underrepresented backgrounds (African-Canadian, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latina). We only have room for 80 girls this summer, so don’t feel discouraged if your nominee isn’t selected, and please apply again!
