“The scholarship winners were passionate and innovative in expressing how PSAC can break new ground in the future to better improve the working conditions and rights of its membership,” said PSAC National President Robyn Benson.
The winners were selected from the more than 270 applications PSAC received from members in good standing and their dependents and applicants were required to submit either an 800-word essay, YouTube video, infographic or song based on the following question: “What ground should PSAC try to break in order to stay relevant in the next 10 years?” Visit the national website for the full list of 2016 scholarship winners.
