Over the past two weeks, we have been poring over sponsorship applications sent in by student groups from across Canada. Applications came in the form of essays, videos, photos, social media campaigns and even petitions! Evidently, our decision-making process was eggs-tremely difficult.
However, after careful deliberation, we have finally selected our winners. We’d like to congratulate the following student groups for securing sponsorships with us for the 2012/2013 school year:
JDC Central is a dynamic, student-run competition that will see 500 business students competing in eight academic cases and a parliamentary-style debate, as well as sports, charity and social challenges. This year the event is being hosted by Dalhousie University.
An organization of over 3000 students, the Commerce Undergraduate Society is the largest business undergraduate society in Canada. The CUS strives to create opportunities for professional, social and academic enhancement.
The Engineering Society, also known as EngSoc, is the student government and embodiment of all engineering activities at the University of Toronto. EngSoc boasts over 4,500 full-time members and proudly continues the traditions of Canada’s oldest and largest engineering school.
The Arts Undergraduate Society (AUS) is the student council of all McGill students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Arts & Sciences degree. Founded to represent the interests of Arts students to McGill’s administration, the AUS now provides many student resources to aid them in their studies and extracurricular life at McGill.
The York Marketing Association (YMA) is the official marketing club at the Schulich School of Business. Known for its exciting and engaging events, the mission of YMA is to expose its members to the world of marketing and provide a starting point for the development of future business leaders.
The Pre-Business Students’ Network involves students at Western University interested in careers in business and enhances their experiences through case competitions, review sessions, volunteering opportunities, resumé workshops, intramural sports, networking opportunities, and more.
The BSA was created to give Brock business students the opportunity to put their classroom skills to use and gain real world work experience. The BSA also sends students to national competitions, runs an apprentice program for younger students, and even gives academic credit to actively-involved BSA members.
SIFE Ryerson provides opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience, and generate personal and professional success by working with underprivileged people from around the globe, giving them the skills, knowledge and resources they need to improve their lives.
Throughout the school year, we’ll be actively working with these groups to establish long-lasting and meaningful relationships. TalentEgg founder Lauren Friese will also be travelling to each school to meet with group members and share her eggs-pertise on job hunting, entrepreneurship, and other topics that are of value to students.
In addition, due to the volume and quality of applications we received, we’ll be partnering with a select number of additional groups that were close runners up for sponsorship. Stay tuned for an upcoming feature on TalentEgg.ca highlighting these groups and their accomplishments.
Finally, we’d like to thank all groups who participated in our sponsorship contest: we were truly overwhelmed and inspired by the quality of your applications.
Stay tuned for more information on the egg-citing initiatives we’re undertaking with these student groups!
