  • Canadian University Student Wins $100,000 Prize!

    A 20-year-old Canadian university student in Nova Scotia has won “Canada’s Luckiest Student” competition and been awarded amazing prizes worth $100,000.

     

    Students from Canadian universities, colleges, and high schools participated in the contest, which was sponsored by the StudentLife Network, and Alex van der Valk from St. Mary’s University in Halifax was selected as the lucky winner.

     

    Since August 2015, she had been successfully completing various online challenges as part of the nationwide student competition.

     

    In January 2016, this lucky Canadian university student was notified that she was randomly chosen as “Canada’s Luckiest Student” and would receive prizes totaling $100,000.

     

    Her prizes include a check for $20,000 from the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC); a brand new car; free university tuition for one year; a $5,000 shopping spree for clothes; free groceries for the next twelve months; a European vacation; and concerts worth $4,000.

     

    When Alex van der Valk was informed that she won this incredible contest, she said she couldn’t believe it.

     

    One of her professors at St. Mary’s University was not surprised, however, saying that the student works hard both inside and outside the classroom.

     

    The 20-year-old student said that she plans on using some of the prize money to do nice things for her friends who supported her during the competition.

     

    Canada has a top-rated education system, including several of the best universities in the world.

     

    In fact, the Legatum Institute considered Canada to have the #2 best education system on Earth in 2015.

     

    The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016 ranked the University of Toronto as the world’s 19th best institution of higher education; the University of British Columbia was rated #34; and McGill University came in 38th place in the global rankings. Other respected rankings of universities around the planet have also listed Canadian universities among the top 100 in the world.

     

    One of the advantages of Canadian immigration is access to Canada’s world-class education system and the great career options a higher education can provide. For example, a 2015 study found that over 84% of children born to people who immigrate to Canada will receive a post-secondary Canadian education.
