In an effort to engage the student population at the University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan and the First Nations University of Canada and to better utilize the pool of talent that exists in this province, SIPP developed the annual Student Public Policy Essay Contest. Essays from both graduate and undergraduate levels are judged by an independent group of scholars and policy practitioners. The two winning submissions are made available to the public through this publication.
