Sun Youth is inviting the public to tell these young people’s story.

Here is how to proceed! Do you know of a young person in the Greater Montreal area, aged between 3 and 17 years, who did something that deserves to be highlighted and rewarded with a new bike, a safety helmet and a bike lock? Then, send us, in writing, the following information: the name of this young person, the age, a little about family background, and tell us what that young person did that you feel is noteworthy.
