Three categories of incentive prizes to encourage the development and demonstration of Canadian talent and sounding rocket and launch vehicle technologies.
This contest series is intended to be a recurring annual competition with three major categories - each with allocated prize money as a percentage of total industry donated prize money raised (the current prize purse is $30,000 CAD).
The competition also aims to engage with partners in industry as well as government agencies, to provide them the opportunity to help develop specific challenges to encourage the development of specific technologies or skill sets that the partner organization deems valuable.

“We were blown away by the amount of enthusiasm for the Base 11 Space Challenge that came out of Canada. Seeing how much raw rocketry talent is there, I'm excited to partner with the Launch Canada competition to help unlock that talent, create more opportunities in STEM for everyone, and show the world what we can accomplish together.”
