2021 BSA Awards Gala winners announced
The BSA Awards Gala takes place annually, recognizing the excellent projects and people that make up our community. This year, we held a virtual Gala, and were delighted to see so many familiar names and faces on screen. It was a warm ceremony on a cold night, spent celebrating the work, achievements, and collaboration of those who make up the BSA. Congratulations to all those who were recognized at the 2021 BSA Awards Gala and to everyone who had a part to play in each of the projects awarded!
