carsten_dexterBRHS Grade 11 student Carsten MacLean was among the winners of Nova Scotia's second annual Premier's Power of Positive Change Awards. Premier Darrell Dexter and Education Minister Marilyn More honoured 10 Nova Scotia students, from Grade 4 to Grade 12, at a ceremony at Province House today, June 3. The Premier's Power of Positive Change Awards recognizes public school students who demonstrate leadership organizing a school or community activity or show exemplary behaviour promoting positive attitudes. The recipients for the 2010 awards were selected from about 80 nominations. The recipients received a certificate of recognition and a $2,000 bursary toward post-secondary education or training.

Carsten was recognized, in part, for being instrumental in organizing the first Bridgetown Regional High School Conference on Climate Change. He writes a regular column for the local newspaper and the town website. Carsten has organized events promoting Earth Hour and Earth Day.

The Premier's Power of Positive Change Award was launched in 2009 in recognition of two Nova Scotia high school students, Travis Price and David Sheppard, who caught the public's attention with a pink t-shirt crusade in support of a bullied student.
