Green Innovation Challenge

Do you have an idea to make your CEGEP, your community, or our planet more sustainable?

John Abbott College invites CEGEP students to participate in the Green Innovation Challenge, held on Friday, January 13, 2023.

Join us, build a team, learn from expert mentors, create prototypes and pitch your project ideas. The winning team will receive a $1,000 prize offered by Desjardins to help launch your project into the world! Two $500 prizes will also be offered. Please note that students are required to participate for the full day in order to pitch their project idea. As well, teams who win first and second prizes will be required to provide a short update on the first phase of their project by May 5, 2023. More details will be provided during the event.

Please register by Monday, January 9; it’s free and so is the food.

The event will take place all day on Friday (breakfast at 8:30 and the event starts at 9:00). It is open to students from all CEGEPS on the Island of Montreal, whether you attend an English or French school.

If you have questions, please contact
