This year, 42 students from across Canada submitted applications for the Esri Young Scholar Award – nearly double the number from last year! Find out who was selected as the 2016 Esri Young Scholar for Canada and who earned honourable mentions for their work.

The Esri Young Scholar Award recognizes exemplary work in geospatial sciences, whether in the traditional fields of geography and geomatics or any of the diverse fields where location matters, such as health and social sciences, urban planning, ecology and hydrography.

This year's judging panel was comprised of one college faculty member and two university faculty members. Thank you to all of them for their time and effort!
