    Prizes will be awarded based on a candidate’s full application file, which best fits the aims and goals of promoting education and excellence in the Portuguese community in Ontario.

    All submissions will be scored by an expert panel of educators formed as "The FPCBP Essay Selection Committee", whom bring a wide representation of academic expertise and experience. They are an INDEPENDENT group at arms length from the FPCBP Executive and the Board of Directors (who in no way influence or participate in the judging process).

    The committee members take this competition very seriously and look for the best student applications to ensure the integrity and recognition of academic excellence and merit. If a committee member comes across a student they know, or have worked with, they recuse themselves from voting on that applicant’s file.
