Mount Co-op Student of the Year Awards (2019)

The Mount Co-op Student of the Year Award was established in 1999 to recognize the achievements of Mount co-op students and to mark the 20th anniversary of co-operative education at the Mount. Each year, deserving students are nominated by employers for the Mount Co-op Student of the Year Awards.
