Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


The Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award (previously named the Tricolour Award) is the highest tribute that can be paid to a student of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario for valuable and distinguished service to the University in non-academic and non-athletic activities. Such service may have been confined to a single field, or it may have taken the form of a significant contribution over a wide range of activities. Having existing as simply The Tricolour Award for decades, it was subsequently named in honour of Agnes Benidickson who was Chancellor of Queen's University from 1980 until 1996. Award recipients are inducted into the Tricolour society, and their names engraved on a plaque in the Students' Memorial Union portion of the John Deutsch University Centre.

The award is given annually to a select number of students from the university, the number of which is determined by the Selection Committee based on the nominees. Notable recipients include columnist Jeffrey Simpson, Bank of Canada Governor David A. Dodge and Canadian Cabinet minister James Armstrong Richardson.
