We will be announcing the names of our Beaverbrook Vimy Prize winner from England in early May.
There were so many amazing applications that once again our task was extremely difficult, and we thank all who applied.
This program is made possible due to generous support from the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation and also from the Government of Canada.
