2016 Wideman Prize Competition Info for Students

The Wideman Education Foundation will be hosting its annual Wideman Prize Competition for its seventh year in 2016!

The competition is open for anyone required to complete a project during their post-secondary course work. The emphasis is on project management principles and skills – with a project management “crash class” provided for those who haven’t taken a project management course.  Evaluation, judging and winning the Prize will be based on integrating those principles and skills into the execution of the project.

An application form, competition guidelines, and important dates are available on the WEF website by clicking here.
