This award recognizes the significant progress made by individual students in developing networking and communication skills. Two (2) students will be chosen to represent the CIBC Company of the Year along with three (3) students from regions around the province. Each will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the JA Youth Success Summit, held July 21-26, 2019 in Calgary, Alberta.
The JA Youth Success Summit is a new interactive conference developed and hosted by JA Canada. Its purpose is for high school participants to develop universal success skills, unlock their leadership potential, and participate in the JA Company Program national championship.
Over 4 days, participants will learn from a variety of inspirational speakers and engage in interactive sessions that explore the top skills that enable success, regardless of one’s career objective. They will also apply these skills as they compete in a team based business challenge – to assess and resolve a current real-world business issue. Corporate partners will guide development of the challenge issue and judging of the team presentations at the end of the week. A portion of the students will also be competing in the National championship for JA Company Program winning teams from across Canada. The final evening will feature an awards banquet for the Summit participants to honor top teams in the competitions.
