New sholarship for high school students


The Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council (KRIC) has announced a partnership with Shad Valley, Canada’s premier program for igniting an entrepreneurial and innovative spark in Canada’s youth, to provide a $2000 scholarship for a high-achieving grade 10, 11 or 12 student in the East Kootenay.

This exceptional development opportunity will be granted to the student who submits the strongest application by January 18, 2012. In addition, Shad Valley also offers a financial awards package (scholarships and bursaries) to successful candidates who need support towards their participant fee.

Shad Valley is the place for bright youth to push their creative and intellectual capacity to the limit. Their participants have:

· creative and entrepreneurial minds;

· initiative and drive;

· excellent communication and interpersonal skills;

· leadership abilities and the desire to be part of a collaborative, high performance team;

· involvement in their school and community; and

· high academic achievement, with a passion for math, science, and technology.
