1st Annual PMI Vancouver Island and PMI Educational Foundation High School Challenge

by Information Technology - January 30, 2018 | No Comments

Who can participate?

Grade 12 students from schools located in Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, or Yukon

What type of projects will be accepted?

A project is defined by the Project management Institute as “a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together.”

It could be a school project or a community project. Example of school projects are Science projects for science fairs, a play, or running a school event like a dance, or sports meet. Example of community projects are bottle drives, engaging with local First Nations in an specific activity, or work with a local non-for-profit to deliver services to vulnerable sectors.

What do I need to do?

Project Managers use what is called a “Project Charter.” This document describes what the project is about and some high level information. You will be asked to write a project charter for your project based on a template provided by the PMI Vancouver Island Chapter. Download the template here.

In addition, please fill out this registration form. The entry form MUST be supported by your principal, a teacher, or an authorized school official.

What is the prize of the challenge?

The winner will receive a $300 bursary for expenses related to post-secondary education. It can be used to cover the cost of tuition, educational supplies, or residence. It will be sent by PMI Vancouver Island Chapter directly to the school or supplier of goods or services.

Also, the winner will be invited along with a Chaperone to the May Chapter Dinner and AGM in Victoria. All expenses related to transportation, lodging, and meals will be covered by the Chapter. The winner will have a 15 minute presentation to showcase the project in front of the Chapter members.

Of course, there are also bragging rights!

At the discretion of the jury, the Chapter can also award two (2) special mentions. Each one will receive a $50 gift card.

Can I participate with a team project?

Yes. However, one person must be designated as the project lead. In case a team wins the challenge, the project lead will be the one attending the prize presentation in Victoria. Also, there is only ONE $300 prize and, therefore, it will be evenly split amongst the team members.

Who is the jury?

The jury will be comprised of three (3) project manager professionals, members of the PMI Vancouver Island Chapters.

What is the Timeline?

Submission deadline: March 31, 2018

The winner will be announced: April 30, 2018

Award will be presented at the PMIVI Dinner: May 30, 2018

Who can I contact if I have more questions?
