CARSP Student Competitions
Welcome Students and Young Professionals! This page will provide all the information regarding the student competitions, awards, events, and much more related to the 2024 CARSP Conference. We look forward to seeing you there!
This year, we’re offering two ways students can showcase their work on a road safety topic, gain expert feedback, and earn cash prizes (including complementary conference registration). In addition to the CARSP Student Paper Competition, now in its 19th year, we are once again offering the Student Poster Competition! More information and links to each competition are below.
Student Paper Competition
The CARSP Young Professionals Committee is excited to host a student paper competition, sponsored by Western Ergonomics. Students actively registered in a Canadian university or college (including post-docs) can submit papers on any road safety topic. Authors of the top three papers will receive complimentary registration and the following monetary awards:
- $1000 for first place
- $600 for second place
- $400 for third place
Student Poster Competition
The Student Poster Competition requires that students complete an abstract outlining the content of their poster. Abstracts accepted are invited to attend the conference, and the posters are judged at that time. The benefits of this option are as follows:
- Opportunity to discuss your work with road safety professionals
- Opportunity to receive complimentary conference registration and win cash prizes:
- $500 for first place
- $300 for second place
- $200 for third place
This casual evening event offers an opportunity to mix and mingle with conference delegates, including students and industry members. More details to follow.
