The CASCA is a Canadian society of professional astronomers created in 1971 and incorporated according to Canadian Laws in 1983. The society was given the goal to promote and develop knowledge of the Universe via research and teaching. In order to acknowledge the efforts toward excellence of students, the society created, in 1996, prices awarded for the best student's presentations at the annual meeting. The judges for these are members of the Board of Directors of the society.
