The Environmental Managers Association of BC (EMA of BC) is proud to announce submissions for its Academic Poster Competition are open as part of its annual workshop on Thursday March 1, 2018 at SFU Segal Building, 500 Granville Street. We invite students of BC post-secondary institutions currently enrolled in an environmentally-related technology, undergraduate, graduate or legal program to submit a poster based on their original academic research for consideration of the Environmental Innovator’s Award. A total of $1500 will be awarded to students of the top three posters!
Eight (8) posters will be selected for display during the 2018 EMA of BC workshop. Students of the selected posters are asked to attend the workshop to engage with participants. Up to two (2) students per selected poster will be given FREE attendance to the workshop. This is a great opportunity to network with industry professionals and explore your career path.
