Millar up for YWCA award

New Westminster's Ceilidh Millar is a finalist for the YWCA's young woman of distinction award.

The NWSS grad and BCIT broadcast and online journalism student is the founder of End Bullying Through Peer Advocacy. Millar has been campaigning against bullying since she was in Grade 9, and in 2012 was the only Canadian named as a Huggable Hero by the Build-A-Bear Workshop program in the United States.

The winners of the 30th annual YWCA Women of Distinction awards, which include 10 categories, will be announced on May 28 at a dinner at the Westin Bayshore. Millar is one of seven nominees in her category.
