The award-winning Shad Valley program sends 500 students between grades 10 and 12 to live in residence at a university for four weeks to take part in lectures, workshops and team-building activities run by university faculty and industry leaders. The program is centred around fusing innovation, entrepreneurship, science and technology.

Sampson, Clark and Wuth were chosen not only for their good grades, but for their passion for science, engineering, math or technology, as well as their exceptional drive, initiative, creativity, and entrepreneurial minds. They were also recognized for their leadership and volunteer efforts.

These students will likely be given a head start on for university, and the skills to help them become leaders in their community.
