Imagine what it'd be like to score $65,000 in prizes. You'd be a pretty lucky student. Daniel Pracsovics is this year's luckiest student across Canada.

Daniel, a Physics and Astronomy student, won more than $65,000 in prizes this past Saturday at the Bombshelter Pub thanks to the Canada’s Luckiest Student contest hosted by Student Life Network. Daniel was joined at the big announcement by 30 of his friends and family who came from Cobourg to celebrate his winnings.

Daniel worked hard to win the contest and had certainly done his research before winning, actively applying for scholarships over the past couple of years.

I found out about Canada’s Luckiest Student contest a couple of years ago via the Student Life Network. Along with entering the contest there were countless ways to achieve voucher codes to increase my chances of winning. This included completing daily challenges, locating voucher codes on the Student Life Network’s social media platforms, opting into different prizes as they came out and even applying for other scholarships outside of the Student Life Network. - Daniel Pracsovics

Daniel is overjoyed with the results of the contest - and does he ever have a reason to be. Among the long list of prizes, Daniel has won a $20,000 Guaranteed Investment Certificate from CIBC, free textbooks for four years for him and a friend, free tuition and groceries for a year, a road trip across Canada, a trip for two to Peru, $2,000 to stay anywhere in the world, concerts, a new smartphone - and the list goes on.

The $20,000 will definitely help with the costs of university, and upper-year housing too. Because I’m in Physics and Astronomy, I will be able to start my own undergraduate research without having to worry about finances... I haven't decided on the destination for my trip to go anywhere in the world but I might stay in Bermuda, as it is where I was born and know that it’s a great place to vacation. I’ve won so much and it will take a lot of planning to figure out what to do with it all. - Daniel 

As a first-year student, the contest has given Daniel a great start to his university career.

It is a lot to take in, but so far, it feels amazing! It is so incredible to be this lucky. - Daniel
