Canada’s Luckiest Student 3 Scholarship and Prizes January 5, 2017 Deadline

  1. Canada’s Luckiest Student 3 (CLS3) Scholarship and Prizes

So what’s this contest all about?

  • It starts with $20,000 for you to use for school; a Dell Tech Bundle for you and a friend; a Geckos Adventures trip to Peru for 2; and it only gets better from there. Throughout the contest, we’ll keep adding new prizes until you just can’t take it anymore.

  • The best part is there is no requirement other than being a Canadian student over the age of 16. You don’t have to be an all-star student. You don’t have to be good at sports. You don’t have to be talented. You just have to enter!

  • Yes, one student really will win everything. But only if they’ve opted in to all the prizes. Don’t worry, we’ll tell you every time we add a prize, so you won’t be left out.

  • Some of the prizes you can opt into are designed to be shared with friends. For example, the Fido package consists of a smart phone, tablet and $1000 bill credit and the same prizes for a friend; if you win, you win the bundle, AND your friend receives the same bundle, but only if you've chosen them and they've entered in the contest. We’re all about sharing the love. It’s just more fun that way!

  • The winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries. Increasing your entries using the Extra Entries tab on the contest dashboard increases your chances to win. It’s that simple.

  • Due:  January 5, 2017

  • You must join Student Life Network in order to apply.

As of September 1, 2015 diploma exam weighting will shift from a 50/50 weighting to a 30/70 weighting where school-awarded grades will be worth 70 per cent.

Diploma exam weighting to change to 30/70Photo from Alberta Education

Photo from Alberta Education

Alberta Education announced today a change to the weighting given to diploma exams starting this fall. Here is the news release:

As of September 1, 2015 diploma exam weighting will shift from a 50/50 weighting to a 30/70 weighting where school-awarded grades will be worth 70 per cent.

The change in diploma exam weighting will provide a more accurate reflection of student performance by putting a greater weight on teachers’ assessments of students’ abilities and knowledge. Students write diploma exams for Grade 12 core courses (language arts, social studies, mathematics and sciences). The first round ofdiploma exams to be written with the new weighting will take place in November 2015.

 “We want students to benefit from classroom assessments that reflect their abilities over a longer period of time, rather than relying so heavily on one assessment lasting only a few hours.”

Gordon Dirks, Minister of Education

The news release also included information about dual-credit partnerships.

New dual-credit partnerships will mean that students have more opportunities to earn post-secondary credits or workplace certification while completing high school with 24 new partnerships.

For example, students can now take high school courses in carpentry, welding, esthetics, and accounting and get credits at a post-secondary institution.

“Dual credit is about enabling students to find their passions and get a lead on life after high school. Whether it’s providing a head start for a post-secondary education or a career, dual credit opportunities help open doors for students.”

Michael Kulchisky, CEO, Quinn Contracting Ltd. and Provincial Dual Credit Strategy Committee Member
