Testimonial from our 2016 Contest winner:

“Attending the CEO Awards Gala was a valuable experience for me because it opened my eyes to all of the work that goes on behind the scenes to create a business environment that is conducive to a thriving engineering sector in this province. Having attended the Gala, I am now aware of a whole new range of opportunities through which I might put my engineering education and experience into practice.” - Brett Crowley, civil engineering student at Queen’s University.
