Company Program Awards


Every year, JA Central Ontario recognizes outstanding Company Program students through individual and group awards.

Award submission will open in 2023.



Advisors must nominate students and let them know they have been nominated for all individual awards with the exception of the Jane Eisbrenner Award for Exceptional Leadership. One nomination per category per team is allowed.

Achievers do not require a nomination for the group awards but must include the name of an advisor to endorse their group award application.



All award applications must be submitted through the online application portal through Judgify this year. No email applications will be accepted.

Students will be asked to create an account and will be able to save their applications as they go. They will also be asked to include the name and email of an advisor to endorse their application after submission.

The advisor will be sent a copy of the submission automatically by email and a request for endorsement.

Advisors are not required to provide any additional references beyond the endorsement. Students are encouraged to check with their advising team to determine which advisor to include in their application to provide the endorsement.

Advisor Awards


Each year, we induct outstanding Company Program advisors into our prestigious Hall of Fame. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the program, and honours advisors who go above and beyond to support students throughout the experience.

Gerald M - Company Program Advisor Hall of Fame 2022

Gerald Mak


Here's what the students have to say about Gerald:

"Gerald’s passion for the program shines through everything he does. The first quality that makes Gerald stand out is his enthusiasm towards our company, where it is evident that he genuinely wants our team to benefit. He spends hours upon hours as an active and valuable contributor at all our meetings and even executive meetings.  He goes out of the way to support our team despite his busy schedule. As a result, our team is never shy to message Gerald, who is always willing to hop on a Zoom call to support us."
