CCVI Student wins Prestigious National Innovation Award

Centennial Spartan Grade 12 student Devanshi has been awarded an Ernest C. Manning Award for Canadian innovation at the 55th Canada Wide Science Festival held this month in Montreal.  More than 480 finalists competed at McGill University – four of the finalists were named Manning Young Canadian Innovators. Devanshi earned her spot at the national science fair after winning gold at the Waterloo-Wellington Science and Engineering Fair held this April in Kitchener, Ont. 

For her project, Devanshi developed a biosensor for the detection of microbial contamination. “Every year, millions of people get food poisoning -- causing complications and negative effects to their health. One of the main reasons for this is because fungal contamination is not always visible. So this year, I worked on developing a sensor to detect fungal growth in food and the environment before visible signs are present,” said Devanshi in a press release about the awards. “The calibre and ingenuity of these projects prove age is no barrier to innovation,” said Jennifer Diakiw, President of the Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation, calling the 2016 winners passionate and creative visionaries.

Along with the recognition of being a Manning Young Canadian Innovator, the prize also includes a trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in October for the Foundation’s National Awards Gala, a membership in a network of nationally recognized innovators, and a cash prize. You can read more about Devanshi’s project on the Ernest C. Manning Innovation Awards website.
