Challenge Nova Scotia 2023

NSCC Libraries is pleased to support Challenge Nova Scotia again! This year’s competition is Friday, Nov. 17. An important requirement for this competition is ensuring the teams provide credit for ideas and works created by others (i.e. authors and photographers). This is called Academic Integrity and you can learn more by visiting the Academic Integrity Guide.

2023 Challenge Question

The question will be released on the morning of the Challenge Nova Scotia event.

Academic Integrity

All Challenge Nova Scotia participants must complete an Academic Integrity session prior to the day of the Challenge event. You can find the list of Academic Integrity Sessions for Challenge Nova Scotia Participants in the NSCC Libraries Events Calendar.

These sessions run until November 14th, so be sure to attend a session by that date.
