The contest was exceptionally difficult this past year with 4 excellent candidates selected in the preliminary round by their peers. The final selection committee, composed of three members of the Butters Foundation and 2 professors from the department, interviewed each candidate and then rendered the difficult decision. The winner, Mme Julie Noiseux, was awarded a cheque of $1,500 and her name was engraved upon the bursary plaque that is proudly exposed in a central location within the department. The cheque was presented at a CEGEP awards ceremony provided over by the DG in late May.
