CaYPT Organizing Committee
The CaYPT Organizing Committee consists of high school and undergraduate student volunteers. We work to organize CaYPT national tournaments, run the national camp and support Team Canada in the annual IYPT.
We are always looking for talented and hardworking students to join our committee. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
