The Kodiaks of l’École secondaire catholique régionale de Hawkesbury (ESCRH) were once again standouts in the Place à la jeunesse contest organized by the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa, on Thursday, November 18.
Three teams from ESCRH participated in the virtual competition, with two winning scholarship prizes.
The Accounting team, made up of Renaud-Pierre Charlebois, Geneviève Villeneuve and Justin Chartrand, won first place in their division, with each team member receiving a $5,000 scholarship from the University of Ottawa. Alexane Léonard, Lyane Larivière and Juliette Bourgeoys came in second place in the Marketing section, each receiving a $ 1,000 scholarship to continue their studies at the University of Ottawa. Noah Belle-Isle, Mariane Poirier and Jacob Morter, participated for a second consecutive year in the Entrepreneurship section.
Teachers Nancy Turpin, Camille Chao and Mikaella Leblanc (accounting), Mélanie Larocque and Jason Golden (debate, entrepreneurship and marketing) helped prepare the three teams for the competition.
Since 2013, the students from ESRH have won a total of $ 80,000 in the Place à la jeunesse contest.
