Duke Awareness Week


The 2018 Flag Raising at Government House

Since 2011, the Premier of Nova Scotia has proclaimed the third week of October to be Duke Awareness Week in Nova Scotia.

Each year, we begin the celebrations with a Flag-Raising Ceremony at Province House where the proclamation is publicly read by a member of the Provincial Legislature. The Lieutenant Governor, our Honourary Patron, brings greetings and officially raises the Duke flag on our behalf.  

We encourage all members of our Duke family to celebrate the Award by participating in specially themed days throughout the week.

Make it Known Monday 
Raise Awareness! Plan and participate in a Flag Raising Ceremony in your community; at school, city hall, anywhere you can raise a flag and raise awareness! 

Talk-it-up Tuesday 
Spread the word! Tell your friends, family, and peers about what you're doing with your Award. If you really want to be fancy, organize an information session at your school or club.

A-WEAR-ness Wednesday

Show off your Duke Pride and wear your pins, hats and shirts!

Thank You Thursday
It's impossible to do anything alone! This is your chance to thank everyone who is helping you on your journey with the Award, such as your Award Leader, and your assessors.

Fitness Friday
Get out, break a sweat, and take part in a physical recreation activity this Friday. While you're at it, log your hours towards your Award Level!

Service Saturday

A great way to give back to your community; get out and volunteer this Saturday. Plan a park clean-up, or help out a friend; be creative!
