Construction sector interns across Canada are eligible for a new scholarship program sponsored by estimating software developer, HCSS.
HCSS has launched its Construction Intern Awards, worth $22,000 in post-secondary school scholarships to students in construction-related fields. The top winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship, and four additional finalists will each get a $3,000 scholarship, along with the chance to win other prizes.
Eligible internships include any construction internships of at least two months in length that occurred during the 2014-2015 school year or summer 2015. Entrants must have been enrolled in a college, university, or trade school for the 2014-2015 school year.
To enter, students simply need to visit www.constructioninternawards.com to register and fill out a brief questionnaire with a summary of their work. Entries will be voted on by an expert panel. The contest is now open for weekly prizes with the final deadline being Sept. 30, 2015.
In addition to scholarship awards, HCSS will be giving away several smaller prizes throughout the contest.
