Larkin graduated from EWP in the 2015-16 school year and was the school’s nominee for the prestigious award. The Government of Alberta offers three Alberta Citizenship Awards to recognize students who have contributed to their communities through public service and voluntary endeavor. The award for each of the three Alberta Citizenship Awards varies, as follows: Premier’s Citizenship Award, Alberta Centennial Award, and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award. One award is available for each high school in Alberta. Each recipient receives a plaque from the Premier. Larkin received the Centennial Award which is only given to 25 nominees from across the province. His award includes a cheque for $2,005 which is reflective of the province's centennial.
