2021-2022 Project SOY Plus Finale

Posted on Thursday, March 17th, 2022

You are invited to the annual Project SOY Plus finale. This year’s event will take place in the University of Guelph's University Centre on March 25th, 2022. Judging and public viewing of projects is available 10 a.m. until noon - during this time, we encourage you to ask questions and learn more about these student innovations. The award presentation is to follow from 12:30-1 p.m.

Project SOY (Sustainable Opportunities for You) Plus is celebrating its 26th year of providing students with a chance to channel their innovative thinking into the development and marketing of plant-based products. Originally started in 1996 as Project SOY, participants were asked to put their minds together to innovate soybean-based products. The competition has now grown to include all plant-based products.

University of Guelph students from the diploma, undergraduate or graduate programs have been working in groups with a faculty advisor to create scientifically sound new product concepts and marketing plans that will be presented to you on March 25th.

All entries will be judged by industry representatives and prizes of $2,500, $1,000 and $500 will be awarded to first, second and third place contestant winners in three categories: diploma, undergraduate and graduate.

We look forward to seeing you there!
