You are invited to the 25th annual Project SOY Plus finale. This year’s event will take place using HopIn software on March 26 from noon to 3 p.m.
Project SOY (Sustainable Opportunities for You) Plus is celebrating its 25th year of providing students with a chance to express their innovative thinking into the development and marketing of plant-based products. Originally started in 1996 as Project SOY, participants were asked to put their minds together to innovate soybean-based products. The competition has now grown to include all plant-based products.
The program is open to any University of Guelph student from a diploma, undergraduate or graduate program. Students are asked to work in groups of five or fewer with a faculty advisor and then present their projects at the March 26 finale. Contestant entries are judged by industry representatives during the finale where cash rewards of $2,500, $1,000 and $500 will be awarded to first, second and third place winners, respectively, in three categories – diploma, undergraduate and graduate.
Using the online platform, HopIn, multiple presentations capturing the unique plant-based creations from students will be available for viewing. During this time, we encourage you to ask questions and learn more about these student innovations.
- Public viewing of projects – noon to 1:30 p.m.
- Award presentation – 1:30 p.m.
