The Emerging Leader Award (ELA) is a way the University of Manitoba recognizes the outstanding contributions that students make to the enhancement of the institution and our community. The award was introduced in 2006 to recognize students who are committed to furthering our educational mission by contributing to the social, cultural or economic well-being of communities on and/or off campus, while encouraging cross cultural understanding and demonstrating sustained leadership and initiative that is worthy of recognition.
Award recipients are invited to and celebrated at the annual Emerging Leaders Dinner (the 2017 Emerging Leaders Dinner will be held on March 16).

Game Changer, now an annual competition at the University of Manitoba, challanges students to solve any problems and/or offer ideas which would offer positive change. This year five subject areas (health, food, medical, climate, or education) were selected idea/problem development. In September, UofM students submitted their problems and/or ideas identifying practical, real-world challenges and which would enact positive change if a solution was found -- 77 problems were submitted. On February 11, 2016, teams (which can include one non-student) offering winning solutions present a 5-minute oral presentation http://umanitoba.ca/research/game_changer/requirements.html.
This year, our BME Team, comprised of Paul White (BME), Ahmad Byagowi (BME), & Jesslyn Janssen (Science), posed an idea regarding Alzheimers Disease. Dr. Moussavi, Prof. Lithgow and Dr. Albensi advised/supervised the research. The team won $5,000!
