It is a pleasure to announce that Sohon Ye, first-year student in Enriched Science obtained the Silver Award - Quebec – Championship, Silver Award - Quebec - Grade 12 or CEGEP in the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge organized by the Canadian Mathematical Society.

The Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) is Canada’s premier national mathematics competition open to any student with an interest in, and grasp of, high school math. It is the most prestigious math competition in Canada, and one of the most prestigious in the Americas. The COMC is the only way to be invited to the CMS’ free, exclusive training camps and compete internationally as part of Math Team Canada!

Sohon was invited to write the Canadian Math Olympiad this year on March 7. Andreea Panait, math teacher and Coordinator of external math competitions at Dawson since 2007, said: "It is an excellent result which is hard to obtain. In my experience of almost 20 years, we have had only one student with a similar result. We are very proud to have Sohon as one of our students in the Science program. In the coming weeks we will be preparing for the Canadian Math Olympiad."

February 22nd, 2024

In 2023-2024, SPACE held its sixth annual writing competition. Students from all disciplines across Dawson College were invited to submit writing that offered a personal interpretation of this year’s theme, Uncertainty. The submissions were divided into three categories—prose (fiction and creative non-fiction), poetry and essay—and were judged in a blind fashion by Lois Valliant (retired Faculty, Fine Arts) and Hannah Rahimi (Faculty, English).

Entries were evaluated according to originality and depth of thought, style, arts-sciences connections and relation to the theme. The winners received gift certificates from Argo Bookstore, and the winners and honourable mentions have been published and highlighted on the SPACE website. You can read and comment on their thought-provoking work here.

Stay tuned as well for the announcement of a public reading by the winners and honourable mentions during the first week of May for SPACE Week.
