Reliance Foundry Co. Ltd. announced it will award $4,000 in scholarships to the winners of its annual Bollards in My Community video contest. The contest, now in its second year, supports future architects, planners and urban designers in their studies to create better urban neighborhoods across North America.
"There's been incredible growth in demand for high-end architectural design in Canada and the United States," said Brad Done, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Reliance Foundry. "In working with a number of developers over the years, we've seen how smart planning and design can shape a community living space, helping create safe and comfortable living environments for everyone."
Participating students will need to submit a video presentation focusing on the purpose and benefit of bollard installations within their community. Videos should demonstrate strong understanding of how bollards increase safety and site aesthetics while presenting specific examples. Presentations not only require students to show their knowledge, but also encourage keen awareness and participation within an urban environment.
"We live in a world that is growing increasingly fast-paced," said Jeremy Bradley, Marketing Coordinator at Reliance Foundry. "Today's students need to learn a range of skills to be valuable to contemporary business. We want to help nurture a generation of storytellers in order to support their future careers."
Deadline for video submissions is June 30, 2015. Reliance Foundry's Marketing Department will review all videos and announce winners on July 6, 2015. The first-place winner will receive $3,000 and two runners-up will receive $500 toward tuition and other education-related costs.
"Students are under incredible financial pressure to pay for their education while making ends meet," said Done. "Our scholarship aims to give dedicated students the financial support they need—so they can focus on their professional development and learning."
All current and future students who plan on attending post-secondary education in Fall 2015 are eligible to apply—however, preference will be given to those studying architecture, civil engineering, site planning, urban planning or a related field of study.
