Microsoft Canada recognizes entrepreneur for excellence in innovation, science and technology at Canada-Wide Science Fair

Microsoft Canada was proud to present Mike Serbinis with the Microsoft Canada Alumni Award at Youth Science Canada’s annual Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) yesterday, hosted at the University of Windsor. In connection with Youth Science Canada, the Microsoft Canada Alumni Award recognizes past science fair participants who best personify excellence in innovation, science and technology.

“As a participant in the 1982 Canadian National Science Fair, I am very honoured to receive the 2014 Alumni Award from Microsoft Canada and Youth Science Canada,” said Michael Serbinis, Vice Chair and founder at Kobo Inc. “It is encouraging to see the young talent here at the Canada-Wide Science Fair and the innovation and creativity that is showcased year after year.”

This award is a part of Microsoft’s YouthSpark program, a companywide initiative designed to create opportunities for hundreds of millions of youth around the world. Through relationships with governments, nonprofits and businesses, Microsoft aims to empower the next generation to imagine and realize their full potential by connecting them with greater education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Youth Science Canada is proud to work with Microsoft Canada because of the large impact the company continues to have on youth and educators across the globe.

“We hope that highlighting the successes of past science fair winners will inspire and encourage younger generations to continue to invest in their creativity,” said Gail Bradley, Community Affairs Manager at Microsoft. “It is important to nurture their scientific impulse and foster innovative thinking.”
