We have spent the past year reimagining the Pat Morris Prize to find a new way of celebrating the life, passions and aspirations of Pat Morris. A new program, focused on making a difference within communities, will be launched Fall 2019.
The prior recipients of the Pat Morris Prize are a stellar group of young people embarking on their future. We wish them extraordinary success in all that they dream and all that they set out to achieve.
Pat Morris was born in Peace River, Alberta in 1937, the third of three children. She and her family moved to Kimberley when she was a small child, and after leaving the mountain town following her marriage to Hugh Morris in 1957, she returned there in 1966 with her new family and resided there until 1973, when the family moved to Vancouver.
