    Step 2 of the OSEntreprendre Challenge

    Validation of applications

    Once eligibility is confirmed, OSEntreprendre sends elementary and secondary school principals a batch of participation certificates to give to students. Principals are encouraged to award these certificates to students in front of their entire class, during an end-of-year activity, or as part of an intercom announcement. When students bring home this cardstock document, it prompts a conversation with their parents, reinforcing the students’ experience. At the college level, the certificates are sent to the directors of student services, who are encouraged to hand out the certificates during an activity. At the university level, the project representatives receive the certificates directly. 

    All eligible projects are recognized and receive a sticker. All participants receive a participation certificate.
