LETHBRIDGE – Two University of Lethbridge students have been honoured with Government of Canada History Awards.

Danica Renke was recognized for the essay “We Must Do Our Part to Help Bring Him Home.” It explores the motivations that prompted Canadian women to enlist in the Second World War, specifically the enlistment of male family members, spouses, and friends.

Also honoured was Ashley Henrickson for “Canada’s Great War,” which researches the experiences of Canadian children whose brothers and fathers served in the First World War.

Each of the twenty university-level recipients will receive a $2,000 prize. Awards of $1,000 are being presented to 172 winners at the high school level.

This is the fourth year for the awards, which are administered by the national charitable organization Canada’s History.
