Awards

Awards & lectures that are currently sponsored by Canadian Foundation for Geotechnique and Canadian Geotechnical Society include:

R. F. LEGGET AWARD
Established in 1970, this is the most senior and prestigious award of the Canadian Geotechnical Society. It is presented annually at the Canadian Geotechnical Conference. The award is the R.F. Legget Medal and a framed certificate.


R.M. QUIGLEY AWARD
The R.M. Quigley Award, formerly known as the Canadian Geotechnical Society Prize until 1995, is awarded annually to authors of the best paper published in the Canadian Geotechnical Journal in the preceding year. The award, issued since 1973, consists of a framed certificate. Certificates are also presented to the authors of papers that receive 'Honourable Mention'.


R.M. HARDY KEYNOTE ADDRESS
This award was established by the Canadian Geotechnical Society in 1987 to honour the memory of the late Robert (Bob) M. Hardy in the form of a Keynote Address presented by a "senior" member at the annual conference. The award consists of a framed certificate.


A.G. STERMAC SERVICE AWARDS
To mark the retirement in 1998 of former President and Director-General of the Society, the Board of Canadian Geotechnical Society invited Tony Stermac to allow his name to be associated with the awards known previously as Distinguished Service Plaques. The Stermac Service Awards are given each year to a small number of members of the Society who have contributed specific, special, worthy or significant service to the Society.


MICHAEL BOZOZUK NATIONAL GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP
The CFG National Graduate Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduate student registered in a program directly related to an identified field of geotechnique. The student must have a high academic standing and show activities or leadership in the Canadian geotechnical community. The nominations are submitted by the graduate student’s supervisor, and the awardee is selected by the Canadian Geotechnical Society Awards Committee. The scholarship is valued at $ 5,000.


THE CANADIAN GEOTECHNICAL COLLOQUIUM
The Canadian Geotechnical Colloquium, established in 1977, is awarded annually to a "younger" member to provide information on a selected topic of particular importance to the geotechnical community. The topic and the winner are selected by the Geotechnical Research Board. The Colloquium is presented at the Canadian Geotechnical Society Annual Conference and must be suitable for publication in the Canadian Geotechnical Journal. The Canadian Geotechnical Society awards a framed certificate and the Foundation provides an honorarium. Valued at $ 5,000.


CROSS CANADA LECTURE TOURS
The Cross Canada Lecture Tour was formalized in 1971. Prominent national and international Geotechnical engineers and scientists are selected to give lectures to Geotechnical engineers and students across Canada. Whenever possible, two tours are organized each year. The Canadian Geotechnical Society selects the speaker and prepares the itinerary, and the Foundation provides travel funds. Local Sections of the Canadian Geotechnical Society are responsible for the speaker's accommodation costs and an honorarium to cover local expenses while visiting their city.

Winners of the following awards are selected by the various technical divisions of the Society. The awards consist in most cases of a framed certificate.


G. G. MEYERHOF AWARD
This award was first presented in 1995 in honour of the distinguished Canadian soil mechanics and foundations engineer, Geoffrey G. Meyerhof. It is awarded for outstanding and significant contributions to the art and science of foundation engineering.


THOMAS ROY AWARD
The Engineering Geology Division of Canadian Geotechnical Society established this award in 1982 in honour of Thomas Roy, one of the earliest geologists and civil engineers whose work is recorded in Canada. It recognizes excellence in engineering geology.


ROGER J. E. BROWN AWARD
Established in 1986 to honour the memory of the renowned Canadian Scientist in permafrost, Roger J. E. Brown, who passed away in 1980, it is presented annually to recognize professional excellence in permafrost science or engineering. The award consists of an engraved wooden wall plaque.


JOHN A. FRANKLIN AWARD
Established in 1993, the Award honours John A. Franklin, past-President of the International Society for Rock Mechanics, for his contributions to the rock mechanics community and to the Canadian Geotechnical Society. The award is presented biennially to an individual who has made an outstanding technical contribution in the fields of rock mechanics or rock engineering.


GEOSYNTHETICS AWARD
This award was established in 2000 to recognize an individual or individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the application of geosynthetics in civil, geotechnical or geoenvironmental engineering in Canada or internationally. The contribution may be theoretical, practical or involve case studies.


GEOENVIRONMENTAL AWARD
The Geoenvironmental Award was instituted in 2000 to recognize an outstanding technical contribution to geoenvironmental engineering in Canada or internationally, with an emphasis on the multidisciplinary nature of environmental geotechnique. It is awarded biennially to recognize the excellence of a current body of work.


ROBERT N. FARVOLDEN AWARD
This award was originally named the Hydrogeology Award. Since 2000 it is presented to an individual or group to recognize excellence in one or more of the following broad areas of hydrogeology: research and publication, professional practice and education, and service to the professional community or the public.


GRADUATE STUDENT PRESENTATION AWARD
Established in 1988 as the Graduate Student Paper Award. In 2002 the CGS revised this award to encourage geo-engineering or geoscience graduate students at Canadian Universities to make formal technical presentations to peer and professional audiences. The award is assessed on the basis of a videotaped presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session, before a live technical audience.

The first place winner receives a certificate, a one-year membership in the CGS, free registration at the national conference with the opportunity to present a paper, and an honorarium from the CFG. The second place winner receives a certificate, a one-year membership in CGS, free registration at the national conference, and an honorarium from the CFG.


UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT REPORT AWARDS
This award was established in 1987 to reward excellence in the preparation of an undergraduate geotechnical thesis by a full-time undergraduate student at an accredited Canadian university. In 2002 this award was changed to the Undergraduate Report Award (Individual Submission) and (Group Submission) to foster individual and teamwork skills in solving open-ended geotechnical design problems and in preparing formal technical reports.

In both undergraduate awards, the prize for first and second place includes a certificate, one-year free membership in the CGS, free registration at the national conference and an honorarium from the CFG.
