2017 Wideman Prize Competition – Vancouver

Here’s your chance to gain recognition for your team, have an important achievement for your Resume and compete with other post-secondary institutions – – – and oh yes, add networking and gaining an employability “edge” to the many benefits of participating in this Competition!

This competition is for any post-secondary student teams, consisting of 3-5 members, who have completed a project between September 2016 and March 2017. The emphasis of the competition is on project management principles and skills, with a project management “crash class”, which will introduce all students to the basic principles and language of Project Management as they relate to this Competition. Evaluation, judging and winning the Prize will be based on integrating those principles and skills into the execution of the project.

Our theme for 2017 is “Go Green Vancouver”, and the duration of each project must be a minimum of two months.
