Hats Off to You! contest and its Excellence in Science segment
Congratulations to Éloïse Brassard, national winner of the Excellence in Science segment of the Hats Off to You! contest last July.
Éloïse, an intern with the T-MARS team and a bachelor's student in geomatics applied to the environment, won the $2,000 Environment Prize. This prize was awarded by the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC).
The Hats Off to You! contest and its Excellence in Science segment showcase the determination and work of women enrolled in a vocational training or technical training program, or a bachelor’s program in science or technology that leads to a career in a traditionally male-dominated occupation.
- recognizes women who choose a traditionally male-dominated occupation
- rewards their hard work
- promotes the academic success of women within a predominantly male group
- provides role models for women who wish to venture off the beaten track
