The Shevchenko Foundation will be hosting its second annual Tryzub Awards Gala Dinner at the Art Gallery of Ontario on May 14, 2020. The funds we raise make a significant and positive impact on the development of the Ukrainian Canadian community in the fields of arts, heritage and education. This includes support for the development of opportunities for young Canadians to achieve their academic and artistic goals and
initiatives such as the Mitacs/Globalink Research Internship Programs.

At this year's Gala, we are awarding two Tryzub Awards to highly distinguished individuals. The Leadership Award will be presented to Lt. General (retired) Paul Wynnyk, Deputy Minister for Municipal Affairs for the Government of Alberta. The Friend of Ukraine Award will be presented to author and historian, Timothy Snyder. The host for the evening is Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of Performing Arts for the Royal Conservatory. We are also happy to announce that the guest performer at the Tryzub Awards will be Steven Page.
