2021 Graduation Awards

About Graduation Awards

The Show


Graduation awards celebrate excellence in the works of graduating students. These awards are available to students based on works presented in The Show 2021, as well as GPA or a combination of other criteria. Most graduation awards are based on criteria developed in consultation with donors, with some requiring supporting materials. Where possible, students who identify as Indigenous, Black or People of Colour will be given strong consideration to receive awards, as selected by diverse juries.
