Josh Carlsen Named 2021 WCTA Student Award Winner

Every year, the WCTA sets aside up to $2500 for deserving students enrolled in an accredited Turfgrass management.  We would like to thank all six 2021 applicants for their submissions; it’s good to know the turf management industry’s future is bright indeed! 


Congratulations to Josh Carlsen, KPU Turf Management, who took this year’s top honour and with it, receives a $500 award and complimentary one-year WCTA membership.

“Thank you so much for honouring me with this recognition. I compliment the WCTA for providing me, along with all the members, with opportunities to excel, and for growth and up to date information about the industry. This award will help me continue my studies in Turf Management.  Keep up the good work, I appreciate all that you and the Board of Directors do for the industry, and again thank you!”
