The Open Government Canada Team is organising its first Student Challenge!

Are you a current or a recent student at a Canadian post-secondary institution? 

We challenge you to share your work with the global open government community!

The Open Government team at the Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada is organising its first Student Challenge! We want to showcase how students are using open data and information available on our portal at open.canada.ca. The goal is to create opportunities for current and recent students at Canadian post-secondary institutions to participate in the open government community and to demonstrate how open data/information can be used in creative ways to solve real problems.

Fill out our quick application form to be eligible to win one of our Grand Prizes. Up to four winners will be brought to Ottawa to attend the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Global Summit being held from May 29-31, 2019!

Deadline for submission is March 31, 2019 at 11:59PM EST.

For more information about the challenge, please visit our website. You’ll find more details about eligibility and prizes, as well as examples of projects.

Please share this message with your student networks.

We look forward to receiving your application!
