John Kulba Award

The John Kulba Award is the most prestigious award presented by the Alberta Chapter. It will be awarded for demonstrated excellence in preparing a plan or strategy that impacts education in Alberta and is relevant to other planners or applicants in other School jurisdictions.

2022 Award Program

The Alberta Chapter Award Program recognizes outstanding educational facilities in the province of Alberta.

The program follows criteria from the Association’s LE Solutions Planning & Design Awards Program and the Pacific Northwest Region’s Pinnacle Award Program. This ensures that the Chapter projects can also compete at the regional and international levels.

The A4LE program recognizes learning projects which positively impact teaching and learning and result from a sound planning process reflecting the needs and expectations of the community.

Award Categories

Awarded to the single most distinctive project, which best satisfies the criteria.

These awards recognize exceptional projects that were not the Design Award winner, but are deserving of recognition according to the criteria.

Number of award(s) is at the Jury’s discretion, if any.
