Student Award

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and/or vice-principals for their demonstration of initiative, supported by the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best. Congratulations to this year’s recipient from Lisgar Collegiate Institute, Clara Costello!


Clara Costello’s caring personality has inspired remarkable independence and capacity within Lisgar’s Student Council. As Co-President, she sees the bigger picture in any situation and mindfully considers the well-being of the people involved, carefully weighing the impact any decision may have on them. She is deeply equity-minded, known for being caring and attentive to others. Students trust and respect her due to her excellent communication skills and commitment to getting things done effectively. As the Student Council’s Grade 11 representative in the past, she created a post-secondary preparation video series and organized the Outdoor Challenge to promote exercise and positive mental health during COVID-19 lockdowns. She has also been club head of LEAF (Lisgar's Environment Action Force) for two years, where she planned social media campaigns to raise awareness about sustainability, organized park cleanups, and planned a Town Hall discussion on environmental justice. She has also shared her passion for the arts, singing with the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir (ORYC) and participating in Lisgar's Improv Club. Through her many commitments at LCI and in the wider community, Clara has consistently demonstrated her ability to balance many different interests and uplift those around her.
