The Clay Riddell Community Hero Scholarship was created in 2019 to honor youth who exemplify all of the traits that Mr. Riddell lived by – leadership, integrity and generosity. The award will be given annually to up to two deserving youth heroes that have been nominated by a participating Birdies for Kids charity. The young heroes will be presented with the award during the championship trophy ceremony by a representative from the Riddell Family.
Applicants must be nominated by a 2020 participating Shaw Birdies for Kids charity.
The award includes a physical trophy and a $7,500 post-secondary scholarship for any college or university degree.

- Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
- Exemplify leadership, integrity and generosity.
- Be entering their first year of studies within three years of nomination.
