It is awarded based on a student’s particular contributions to their co-op employers, co-operative education and the community at large. Students can be nominated by an employer, a Co-op Education staff member, or a faculty member.

Winners are chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Contribution to co-operative education, such as being a volunteer; ambassador for co-op, assisting at co-op events, etc.;
  • Student’s personal statement and resumé;
  • Involvement in extra-curricular activities at school and/or within the community;
