The KBEX Awards recognize those who are outstanding in their role as a Kindersley citizen or business. 

Nominees for the Citizen of the Year were Audrey Heit, Judy Lavoie, Terry Shea and Eugene Heit. The award was presented to Audrey Heit, who has resided in Kindersley for 43 years, "We came when the oil was very good but we've seen a downturn in the oil. But it's basically the same, everybody's the same, they try and help out." She was ecstatic and very emotional to receive her award. Heit thanked her long-time friend, Carol Burke, for nominating her and everyone who voted for her.

Although Jarret Reichert was the only nominee for Young Citizen of the Year, he was still shocked to receive the title. Reichert is involved with minor sports in town as a referee, umpire or a helping hand, "I try to stay as involved as I can around minor sports and keep kids involved in the game." He is often found at the Kindersley rink during the winters, lending a hand.

There was only one nominee for the Rural Roots Award as well, Ron and Deb Smith of Smith Agro Ltd.
