Rudra Subedar

Rudra Subedar, of Austin Elementary School in Austin, Manitoba, has spent his entire teaching career helping students succeed despite limited opportunities. During the past 10 years, students from "disadvantaged" schools in northern and rural communities have consistently received top honours at regional and national science competitions they have prepared for following Mr. Subedar's program. Some of the honours accumulated during this period include 200 medals and other major awards at the regional, national and international levels as well as 21 trips to Canada-wide and world science fairs.
