Last April, the annual galas of the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire (ITA) took place on the Saint-Hyacinthe and La Pocatière campuses. These galas are designed to recognize and celebrate the efforts of students who have distinguished themselves during the school year. A total of 160 prizes and scholarships worth more than $85 000 were awarded for academic success, commitment and involvement in school. During the gala at the Saint-Hyacinthe campus, Lucie Lamarre, a graduate of the Horticultural Production and Environmental Technology program, took top honours, winning the coveted Prix de la Technopole, which includes a $1000 scholarship. Congratulations to all the winners!
