The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals’ (CARSP) Young Professionals’ Committee is hosting a student paper competition sponsored by CAA-Quebec. Students, who are registered in a Canadian university or college, are invited to submit papers on any road safety topic.  Authors of the top three papers will receive the following monetary awards:

  • $1000 for first place
  • $600 for second place
  • $400 for third place

The three winning authors will also receive complimentary registration to the CARSP/PRI 2020 Conference in Montreal, QC from June 15-18, 2020, and up to $1,000 for travel expenses (depending on where the student is residing at the time of the conference). Winning authors must present their papers at the conference to receive their award.  In addition to these three winners, two honourable mention prizes will also be awarded.  Honourable mentions will receive complimentary registration to the CARSP conference.

Entry Requirements and Deadlines

We encourage you to also enter the CARSP - Vehicle Safety Enhancement Award (Special Award for Students) and the general Call for Abstracts for the conference (provided you meet the deadline).  We also encourage you to enter the Student Poster Competition.  Please note that students will only be eligible to win one prize for each original work submitted.  If a student does win multiple awards, by default the student will receive the award with the highest cash prize.  Furthermore, students will need to submit applications and associated requirements for each competition entered.
