The winning project was titled "Northern Ontario Crushing Plant". The group participants included Elena Coutu, Thomas Kelley, Kelsey Holkestad and Elie Habchi. Although there were four senior year Civil Engineering students involved in the project, the competition rules allowed two members to make the presentation (see photo of Thomas Kelley and Elena Coutu). The Capstone Project evaluation was based on a mark of 100: 85% was allotted to the project report and 15% to the poster presentation.
