2022 Anthony J. Mackay Student Paper Contest Winners

Every year, CRPA’s Student and Young Professionals Committee organizes the Anthony J. Mackay Student Paper Contest. The winner receives the Anthony J. MacKay trophy and a $250 cash prize, and the winning paper is published in the CRPA Bulletin.

The 2022 contest was held in conjunction with the ICRP 2021+1 Symposium in Vancouver, BC, in November. Two prizes were awarded this year — one for the best overall presentation (international) and one for the best Canadian presentation.
