Input sought for permanent Dec. 6 memorial

Each year, the Queen’s Faculty of Engineering at Applied Science hosts a memorial service recognizing those lost during the École Polytechnique Massacre that occurred Dec. 6, 1989 in Montreal.

To continue and expand this recognition at Queen, Dean Kevin Deluzio and the Engineering Society’s Memorial Design Committee is sending out a call for designs for a permanent design piece to be displayed in Beamish Munro Hall - Integrated Learning Centre.

Full details, including design constraints and suggested locations for the piece are available on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science website.

This design opportunity is open to all members of the Queen’s community, and joint faculty teams are encouraged to work together to provide a unique and diverse proposal.

The successful designer/design team will be acknowledged at the 30th anniversary memorial service this Dec. 6, along with acknowledgement on the permanent plaque that will accompany the memorial.

Further questions can be sent to the committee at memorialdesign@engsoc.queensu.ca.

The deadline for submissions is 11:59 pm on Sept. 8.
