Brooklyn Harrison wins 2023 Judy Seddon Memorial Award

On what would have been Judy’s 67 th birthday, we would like to announce the winner of the 2023 Judy Seddon Memorial Award. This scholarship is awarded annually to a young woman who is involved in rugby in Alberta as an athlete, referee, coach or volunteer, selected on the basis of community service and academics, who is or will be enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

Brooklyn Harrison is a student at the University of Prince Edward Island entering her first year of a Bachelor of Science with a Major in Biology and a specialization in Life Sciences. She is a multi-sport athlete who started playing rugby in high school. She overcame significant challenges while finishing high school and maintaining involvement in athletics. She was the head coach of the Calgary Rams’ U5 minis rugby program, volunteer coach at Lord Beaverbrook High School girls’ rugby program, and is now
joining the UPEI Panthers varsity rugby team. She is honored to represent Judy by giving back to women’s rugby.

We would like to thank all the applicants and their references for taking the time to apply, and encourage anyone who wishes to apply (or re-apply) next year to mark May 1st in their calendar when applications for the 2024 award open.
