This year represents the third annual CAA University Challenge. Last year we had some great submissions from each university, and University of Montreal was named the champion of the 2016 CAA University Challenge.
Students from each graduating class, currently enrolled in a Canadian audiology program are invited to participate in promoting the field of audiology by creating any type of promotional material. This material can be directed at any group of individuals, including the public, general practitioners, or other health professionals. This may be done in any manner, stream, or format, with the intention that audiologists across Canada will be given access to your promotional material via the CAA website. The promotional material will be used for the promotion of audiology month in October.
A description of how and why the promotional material (maximum 500 words) was developed in the manner you chose should also be included. Submissions must be sent to the CAA Public Relations and Awareness Committee no later than April 30, 2017. The name of the team leader or “captain” should be indicated. There may only be one submission per school.
Students from the graduating class should contact their 2016-2017 CAA Student Representatives for more information.
The school with the winning promotion, as judged by the Public Relations and Awareness Committee, will be announced at the CAA conference and presented with the CAA University Challenge trophy, which they can keep at their university until the CAA conference of the following year. The winning school will have their institution’s name engraved on the trophy. Each student who participated in the winning submission will be given a certificate of merit from CAA for their contribution and will have their name listed on the CAA website.
We look forward to your submissions and may the best school win!
