The CAROCP Distinguished Student Award is our primary opportunity to recognize students who have displayed a positive attitude, demonstrated outstanding skills in class, possess realistic career goals and whose future has been significantly impacted by ROP. Recognition begins with each teacher nominating one student for the competition. Students create a 1½ - 3 minute video showcasing their talents and speaking about how their ROP class(es) have impacted their future career and education plans. One winner is selected from each represented industry sector.
