2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games Now Accepting Nominations 

For Youth Torch Bearers at the ATCO Torch Relay

Lloydminster, SK (June 6, 2024) — The 2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games in Lloydminster is now seeking youth Torch Bearer nominees for the upcoming ATCO Torch Relay, taking place on Sunday, July 21st. The relay will take place throughout Lloydminster and will end with the lighting of the ATCO cauldron at the Opening Ceremony, which will officially mark the start of the provincial multi-sport event.

Lloydminster and area residents are invited to nominate individuals (or themselves) between the ages of 10 to 18 who they believe embody the core characteristics of the Torch Relay: celebration, community, participation, and pride.


“This is a great opportunity for Lloydminster’s youth to represent our community in the lead-up to the 2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games,” said Kim Rody, Torch Relay Committee Chair. “We have a vibrant city full of future leaders and community champions, and we want you to help us showcase our Border City pride to the province during one of the Games’ most exciting celebrations: the Torch Relay!”

The Torch Relay will be presented by ATCO. ATCO is a longstanding supporter of multi-sport games across the country, and has recently sponsored the Arctic Winter Games, Alberta Games, and Canada Games.

We’re excited to fuel the spirit of competition and community at the 2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games,” says Erin Newell-Lupien, Manager, Community Investment, ATCO Ltd. Engaging in sport not only nurtures confidence and leadership skills in individuals but also imparts valuable life lessons and contributes to the positive development of thriving communities, which is why ATCO is proud to support the Summer Games and the community of Lloydminster.”

  • Live in the Lloydminster area
