Technical Innovation Prize:

At the discretion of the jury, the technical innovation prize will be awarded for submissions which think “outside the box”.  It may be awarded for the total design or for one aspect of the design/ systems, etc… which departs from the current norm.


The Student Merit Award:

The Student Merit Award is specifically limited to submissions by students registered  in high school or a Post Secondary Institution and will recognize outstanding achievement in furthering the goals of sustainability. All submissions could be entered in any or all of the above categories but the Student Merit Award category should be clearly identified on the submission. See the Anonymity section (Submission Requirements) for clarification.

The jury also reserves the right to award special merit citations for submissions worthy of acknowledgement.  There will be significant recognition in publications for these special Merit Awards but no cash prize.
