For 23 years, Project SOY (Soybean Opportunities for Youth) served as an annual contest for U of G students to harness Ontario’s largest cash crop for the creation of new, soy-based products. In 2020, Project SOY grew to become Project SOY Plus, in which students could use any biomaterials they chose to develop new products. SOY now stands for Sustainable Opportunities for Youth. Previous creations from this contest include sustainable packaging, lubricants, foods and cosmetics.
