FINAL UPDATE: Who Is the 2020 Canada’s Luckiest Student Winner? Your Guide to the Big Reveal

Written by Student Life Network

The Canada’s Luckiest Student winner will take home $50,000 in life-changing student prizes. Will that winner be you?

Ever since we announced that Canada’s Luckiest Student was closed to new entries, we’ve been getting questions from students all over Canada. “Did I win?” “Have you drawn a winner yet?” “What’s it really like to win?

Good news, as of today, we have drawn a winner!

But as you may know, there’s a bit of a twist. See, we don’t just announce a winner. In fact, planning the big reveal is our favourite part of Canada’s Luckiest Student. We get to surprise one of you with the kind of prizes we dreamt of having when we were in school, like $20,000 from CIBC, rent for a year from H&R Block, a trip to Europe from Contiki, and that’s just to start.

In other words, you’ll have to wait just a little longer to see if you’ve won.

Can’t take the waiting? Need a few hints to know if the Canada’s Luckiest Student winner could be you? Want to know how the reveal planning is going?

You’re in the right place, as we’ll keep updating this page with new details. Here’s what you need to know for now.
