BCCA recently presented the first-ever Case Co-opetition awards to 22 students and four teachers at Rick Hansen Secondary (1st place & the Think Outside the Box Award), Windermere Secondary (2nd Place & Down to Business), Princess Margaret Secondary (3rd Place & Go Big or Go Home) and Point Grey Secondary (4th Place & Radical Co-operation).
The Case Co-opetition is just one of the Co-ops In Schools
that takes place over the school year. High school students work in teams to analyze a co-op or credit union case study and present their findings to a panel of co-op sector judges.The Case Co-opetition alternates annually with the Co-op Business Plan Challenge as the major CIS student project. BCCA thanks our stellar panel of 2016 Case Co-opetition judges: Marty Frost, Ben Hyman and Doug Potentier!
At BCCA’s June 10th AGM, Tasha Nathanson, BCCA’s Youth Program Manager, will also recognize the 34 co-op and credit union system leaders who acted as mentors,16 co-op partners, and the eight sponsoring organizations which invested their time and resources into the CIS Program.
