$500 Scholarship Offer: Technology and Its Role in Society

Northstar Security in Edmonton & Calgary, a home security system provider based in Alberta, offers the best protection on the planet. With over 15 years of experience in the industry and more than 10,000 installations, we know how to ensure our customers remain safe and secure when in the comfort of their own home. A local security company, we listen to our clients and protect homes with state-of-the-art equipment. Furthermore, the monitoring system we partner with is the best available today, allowing our clients to sleep easy knowing they are protected. New talent is of great benefit in moving our industry forward and ensuring we can continue to offer this level of protection. To ensure individuals interested in working in our field have the funds to do so, we are proud to announce we will now be offering a $500 scholarship to one qualified applicant.

Due to the rate at which technology is advancing, many individuals now wonder, “Is technology the solution for more security in society or is the solution found with the use of less technology and more family focus?” Scholarship applicants need to fully answer this question and provide support for the position they take. While our alarm systems do make use of technology to operate, all submissions will be fully considered and those demonstrating a solid argument for less technology and more family focus are appreciated. We cannot move forward in our operations without fully understanding both sides of the argument and all perspectives.
