Awesome Calgary in the News

If you missed it, AF-Calgary's been mentioned in the news a few times in the last couple of weeks.

First, Amber Schinkel from Global TV Calgary (above) did a piece on us featuring February 2012's co-winner John Frosst and his project Gumsphere 300 where John and his team will use the $1,000 to smoosh together a Ford Escort GT and Ford Aspire to create the final "Ford Festiva" needed to complete their fleet of eight for their traveling roadshow.

Next, Annalise Klingbeil wrote a detailed piece on our chapter which ran last week in the Neighbours section of the Calgary Herald that is a great backgrounder on the history of the Calgary chapter of the Awesome Foundation thus far.

Finally, if you're in Alberta, check out Alberta Primetime on CTV TWO Alberta tonight (Wednesday, March 14) at 7:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. for their feature on Timmy's Only, that they partially shot at last month's Thousand Dollar Thursday.

Stay tuned later in the week for our announcement of AF-Calgary's March 2012 Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions, and we hope you can join us for our March Thousand Dollar Thursday event next Thursday at 6 p.m. at Commonwealth Bar & Stage.

In the meantime, we're currently accepting submissions for our April 2012 prize. To submit an idea to AF-Calgary for consideration, fill out this handy-dandy web form. The deadline for April 2012 submissions is Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 11:59 p.m.
