Dalhousie will stage the third annual "Reach for Dalhousie" event Friday, November 17th. Reach for Dalhousie is a contest that owes its origins to the CBC's old Reach for the Top, but has developed in new directions with new teaching technology. Preliminary competitions begin at 10:00 a.m. The semi finals begin at 1:00 p.m. and will be held in rooms 1014 and 1016 of the Kenneth Rowe Management Building.
The stakes are high: first prize The Reach for Dalhousie Full Scholarship for each of the three members of the winning team. Second prize is The Reach for Dalhousie $3,000 Award for each of the three members of the team. Third and fourth place prizes are The Reach for Dalhousie $1,000 Award for each of the members of those teams.
At the 2005 competition, more than 40 high schools from across Atlantic Canada sent teams. Once again, this year the teams hail from across the region:
