Coming together to honour provincial prizewinners
Québec City, June 8, 2022 — The provincial prizewinners were announced before nearly 500 guests gathered at the Palais Montcalm for the Desjardins Grand Prize Gala of the OSEntreprendre Challenge. Students, school staff and entrepreneurs from across the province were selected among the 49 210 people who took part in this 24th edition! Touching moments from the evening, hosted with a touch of humour by Anaïs Favron, can be found on the OSEntreprendre website.
“By sharing the core values and convictions that motivate them with passion and authenticity, and by demonstrating the efforts they have made to adapt, the pleasure they have found in achieving their goals, and their perseverance over the last few months, the winners bring a great deal of energy, pride and inspiration to those who discovered them,” mentioned Manon Théberge, President and CEO of OSEntreprendre.
Overall, 37 provincial prizewinners were announced in the Scholastic, Business Creation, Successful Business Inc. and Doing Business Together sections, for a total of $224 000 in cash prizes, in addition to the scholarships awarded during the local and regional finals of this edition.
