Paradigm Shift Evaluations of the University of Saskatchewan took home the student evaluation case competition plaque at the 2015 CES Conference in Montreal on May 25. Team members were Kirstian Gibson, Michael Heimlick, Danny Robertson, Sarah Sangster and Linzi Williamson. It was a close contest. The team, along with the other two finalist teams – Apex Consultants of the University of Waterloo and One Evaluation from Memorial University – presented their proposals for an evaluation of the Canada World Youth’s Aboriginal Youth Leadership Program to a panel of judges and conference delegates. This marks the third time that the University of Saskatchewan has won this national competition.
The team was presented with the competition plaque at the annual CES awards luncheon.
The SEEK Awards were also presented at the conference. The Winner was a team from the University of Waterloo (Christine Sheppard, Lise Dube, and Kate Ducak) and the Honorable Mention was awarded to Natalie Janssens, Dalhousie University.
The CES/CESEF Case Competition Working Group would like to thank the teams, coaches, judges, and our supporters for making this year's student competitions a great success. And we’ll see you in 2016 – the 20th anniversary of the competition.
