Student Video Competition at CEEA 2017

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, CEEA 2017 will host a Canadian Engineering Education and History Student Video Competition, supported in part by the Government of Canada’s Canada 150 Fund. This competition offers high school and undergraduate students a unique opportunity to learn about Engineering Education and History in Canada, present their results, and compete for prizes.

The videos should address at least one of this year’s conference themes:

  • Canadian Engineering Education
  • Canadian Engineering History
  • Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering in Canada

The objective of this contest is to raise awareness among the public about engineering and engineering education in Canada’s past, present, and future.

The winner of the competition will have their video shown at the opening of one of the days of the CEEA 2017 Conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, June 4, 2017 – June 7, 2017. You will also be entitled to win a cash prize.
