Judges begin making their rounds, visiting all displays, starting at 10:00 a.m. All participants stand beside their displays, explain their projects, and respond to questions from the judges. Since the event is open to the public, others also may have questions.
If I/my team wins, how do I/we claim our prize money?
Cheques will be mailed out after the event (approximately two weeks later) to the mailing address provided on the application form. Please make sure you have filled in the address where you will be living at that time. Prize money will be divided evenly among team members and cheques issued to each individual member. Due to tax implications, Fanshawe College cannot issue a cheque to just one person to be divided later. The College requires each winner's social insurance number (SIN) before it can issue prize cheques.
Will participant and winner certificates be mailed out?
Participant certificates will be handed out the day of the event. Participants who are unable to get their certificates on March 21 can pick them up from the research office located in K1024 beginning Monday, April 1, 2019. The reception area office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Research and Innovation Day prize winners will be presented with a group certificate at the event. Individual certificates for each member of the winning groups will be available for pickup in Room K1024 beginning Monday, April 1, 2019.
Will my name and/or photo be taken/used?
This is a public event. A College photographer and videographer will be present and all entries/teams will be photographed. External broadcast and print news media also will be invited and may choose to cover Research and Innovation Day. By participating in the event, all entrants are deemed to have consented to having their names and images used by Fanshawe College for promotional purposes.
Whom do I contact if I have more questions?
You may contact Research and Innovation Day organizer Alex Jaworiwsky at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Good luck to all entrants!
