3. Tell us about it by filling out the application form on the contest website:

One winner from grade 12 will receive an $1000 untied scholarship, and the winner from grades 9-11 wins a $500 prize. On top of this, both winners will be flown to EWB’s National Conference 2013 in Calgary, Alberta, where they will collaborate with our team to deliver a workshop to over 700 University Students, engineering professionals, and international development experts in our network!
