According to the official site of the organization (our translation):
"Forces AVENIR is there to [...] promote youth involvement in projects which enrich knowledge, encourage the desire to suceed [...]".
It's a competition aimed at Quebec universities, each of them having to submit a candidate for each category.
In July, the Groupe Robofoot was selected for the finals in the category "Avenir Sciences et Applications Technologiques", for Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal.
Consequently, the project received 2000$.
Final winners were be named at the Gala Forces AVENIR, which will took place on September 29, 2005, at the Caisse de dépôt et de placement du Québec, in Montreal.
