Awards & Trophies

Andrew Olynyk Leadership Award

In 2011, the National CYMK-UOY executive together with the Olynyk family, announced the Andrew Olynyk CYMK Leadership Award in memory of Toronto ​CYMKivets, Andrew Olynyk (1993-2009).

This leadership award is given to a Senior CYMK member who exhibits qualities similar to the late Andrew Olynyk. Andrew loved CYMK and demonstrated advanced leadership skills in organizing and planning events and activities. He created opportunities where other CYMKivtsi could learn and develop new skills and gain new experiences. He also made a difference in the lives of other CYMKivtsi by being a role model, mentor and friend. He encouraged others to work hard to reach their goals and aspirations. When faced with adversity, he found opportunities. Andrew shared his joy of life and had a positive attitude and spirit which still inspires others.


The purpose of this award is to encourage the development of leadership skills at a Branch level with the objective of nurturing future leaders within our community.

Congratulations to Nikolai Kruhlak, the 2019 Andrew Olynyk Leadership Award recipient!
