Tell Chrétien where to go

Do you know a university student with strong political opinions and good writing skills? If you do, tell them about a very generous essay contest that could pay for a large part of their education. The Magna for Canada Scholarship Fund awards more than $300,000 in prizes to 50 semi-finalists, 10 regional winners and a national winner.

The student with “most innovative vision and solutions for guiding Canada into the next century” wins $20,000 and a one-year paid internship at Magna International Inc., Canada’s largest auto parts supplier.

Entries have already doubled over last year’s numbers, and the deadline is June 15,1999. Students write an essay in response to the question “If you were the Prime Minister of Canada, what political vision would you offer to improve our living standards?”

The program is open to full-time undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled in an accredited Canadian university, college or CEGEP. Application details are available at or by calling 1-800-97-MAGNA (1-800-976-2462).
