The SASSY Awards was started by the Semiahmoo Rotary Club in 2011. SASSY stands for “Service Above Self” Surrey Youth, incorporating Rotary’s motto. The awards aim to recognize, acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of youth who exemplify the ideals of Rotary by making a positive impact in our community and around the world.
