Since the competition launched earlier this year, multidisciplinary teams of students and young professionals have been working with mentors to develop innovative tech solutions to urgent freshwater issues facing the Lake Winnipeg basin.

At the semi-final, these teams will pitch their solutions to a panel of expert judges from the business, water, and technology sectors (see names below), who will determine which teams will advance to the final phase of the competition.

You will discover all of the exciting ideas Canada's innovators have been carefully concocting over the last few months and get to meet the young innovators themselves!
