Inspiration Award: Christopher Stevenson

The British Columbia Historical Federation (BCHF) is pleased to announce that Christopher Stevenson of Grand Forks is a recipient of an Inspiration award for his work overseeing the Boundary Heritage Facebook Group.   
 
The award is bestowed upon individuals and organizations who have provided hope and beacons of light to the sector in British Columbia during the ongoing pandemic.  
 
A frequent contributor and steadfast monitor over the group’s nine year existence, Christopher has created a place for generations to swap stories and deepen their knowledge of the Boundary area. The group has become a thriving digital space for individuals to share, learn, and grow during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing the community to rally together and celebrate the region safely through the power of memory and constant dialogue.  
 
The award was presented at the Federation’s annual conference awards gala online on June 5. You can watch Christopher’s short acceptance speech below.
