It’s time to pay tribute to the creativity, commitment and resilience of the 40 000 participants in the 23rd edition of the OSEntreprendre Challenge
Québec City, March 17, 2021 — Close to 38 000 young people ranging from elementary school to university and more than 2 000 entrepreneurs from the 17 regions of Québec are bringing their ideas to life and taking part in the 23rd edition of the OSEntreprendre Challenge!
At a time when educational institutions and the business community are dealing with a wide variety of issues, this astonishing number of close to 40 000 participants attests to the creativity, commitment and resilience of our students, education professionals and entrepreneurs, who shine a spotlight on every corner of Québec!
The project selection process will begin at the local level in the next few days. Selection at the regional and provincial levels will start in April and May, respectively. The Desjardins Grand Prize Gala of the OSEntreprendre Challenge will honour the provincial prizewinners on June 9, 2021.
Meanwhile, self-affirmation tools are being distributed to all the participants; these include badges for those who applied through the Scholastic section, and “moi j’OSEntreprendre” or “#faire affaire ensemble” stickers for those who applied through the other sections. All participants in projects deemed eligible for the Scholastic section will also receive a certificate of participation!
We should all be proud of the participants in this great Québec movement, the product of a large-scale mobilization effort involving 350 local and regional representatives and numerous strategic allies, and we should support them as they move through the next steps of the OSEntreprendre Challenge.
