Haskap Goes To Ottawa

The Sanofi-Aventis BioTalent Challenge is a yearly competition sponsored for high school students in order to encourage young Canadians to pursue studies and careers in the field of biotechnology -

This week Kirsten Larson won her region's BioTalent competition in Manitoba with her project entitled: Haskap: An Introduction to the Fruit, Its Health Benefits, and Marketing Possiblities. Not one of her judges had so much as heard about haskap. On Monday she competes in Ottawa on the national stage with thirteen other finalists from across our nation. A haskap ambassador in our nation's capitol! Congratulations, Kirsten...

  1. Congratulations Kristen and good luck in Ottawa. I look forward to learning more about your project. Perhaps you could add a entry to this BLOG describing the project after you get back for Ottawa.
