Events: SFU Engagement - Surrey Centre Neighbourhood

June 25, 2015

The following post is on behalf of SFU Engage, SFU Marketing and External Affairs, and SFU Community Relations and Engagement.

Do you have an innovative idea to engage the Surrey Centre neighborhood? You may be working on an idea as part of a course, through a student club or other organization, or maybe you just have a great idea. If so, we encourage you to enter the SFU Surrey - Central City Student Engagement Competition and you will have a chance to win! A total of $7000.00 will be awarded for the implementation of innovative ideas. 

The SFU Surrey – Central City Student Engagement Competition is a collaborative initiative involving Blackwood Partners Central City and Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus. The competition, which will initially be held once each year from 2014 to 2018, is designed to encourage community-student engagement through innovation. 

Blackwood Partners has provided funds to create two project awards, a Grand Award and an Engagement Award. The City of Surrey has provided funds to create one award for projects that focus on Placemaking (ie. creating something physical in a public space). The award categories are as follows: 

• Blackwood Award: $3000.00 Grand Award (all finalist projects are considered) 
• Blackwood Award: $2000.00 Engagement Award (only finalist projects NOT related to placemaking are considered) 
• City of Surrey Award: $2000.00 Place-Making Project Award (only finalist projects related to placemaking are considered) 

These prizes will be allocated to the students that come up with the most innovative ideas to engage the Surrey Centre neighbourhood. The prizes are earmarked to assist the winning student/team in the implementation of their idea.
