FBO’s Taste Your Future Campaign Launches New Student Bursary Contest

This week Food and Beverage Ontario’s Taste Your Future campaign launched an exciting initiative: A Student Bursary Contest!


The contest celebrates students with innovative ideas on how they can contribute to the food and beverage processing sector.

Students enrolled full-time in high school or a post-secondary institution (university or college) are invited to submit a video showcasing their great idea.

Students can enter the contest either as a “Maker and Designer” or a “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer.”

The “Maker and Designer” category is for students with an idea for a new food or beverage product. The “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer” category is for students with an idea for a new process, software application, tool or machinery for food and beverage processing.

Each category is open to both a high school stream and a post-secondary stream. Individual students or teams are encouraged to submit their application and video for judging by an expert panel drawn from the food and beverage sector. Winners in each category will be awarded $2,000, industry mentorship, career resources, resume coaching and tickets to the May 31, 2017 FBO annual conference for industry recognition.
