What is York Capstone Day?

York Capstone Day is an event held annually in April to celebrate capstone student success with a public, pan-campus event. C4 students wrap up their project journey by participating in activities throughout the event day and compete for awards.

What awards are available?

Community Impact Award (Positive Change Initiative)  

This will be awarded to a project that is a standout example of “out of the box” thinking and that best reflects core C4 values. The award will recognize projects that demonstrate the potential for long-term positive change. 

The successful team will illustrate how their project achieved community impact (actual/potential/future). The applications should reference ALL of the following criteria:  inclusivity, positive change, community connection and legacy.  

Pivot Award (Most Successful Pivot)  

This will be awarded to a team and to an individual who, upon extended reflection, identifies as having gone through a significant transformation. Transformation could emerge from either their collective or individual journey. 

The successful team will illustrate how their C4 experience has been shaped by a significant pivot in their journey. Applicants should highlight how they adapted or improved by adjusting or modifying their strategy (ex. an evolution in skill or approach, a redirection, establishment of relationships).
