The FINAL Awesome Calgary Thousand Dollar Thursday of 2012!

Final Bash of 2012!

As we don't typically hold our Thousand Dollar Thursday events in December (as the fourth Thursday of the month brings us too close to the holidays), we'll be ending 2012 with a BANG.  An AWESOME BANG!

The Calgary Public Library is celebrating 100 years this year, and all year long, they've had special programming at all the branches around the city to commemorate it.

This year also sees the return of One Book, One Calgary, a city-wide library initiative designed to ignite community dialogue and enrich community connections through a shared reading experience.  All Calgarians are encouraged to read the same book and to connect and engage with one another.

The book chosen this year:  The Book of Awesome.

Which we believe is an apt choice around these parts. ;-)

As such, we're happy to announce that our FINAL Awesome Calgary Thousand Dollar Thursday of 2012 will be held in conjunction with the Calgary Public Library's One Book, One Calgary program, and will be hosted at the Central branch of the Calgary Public Library on the main floor.

We'll also have an area highlighting past Awesome participants who have AWESOME SUCCESS to showcase so come down and meet some of our previous AF-Calgary Fellows, Top4 Finalists, Honourable Mentions, fans and supporters!

We're currently accepting submissions for our November 2012 no-strings-attached $1,000 prize.  If you'd like to submit an Awesome Idea for consideration, fill out this handy-dandy web form!

A BIG Thank You to the Calgary Public Library for including us in this AWESOME initiative, and we wish you a very Happy 100 years!

We hope that you can make it out to our final event for 2012, and make sure to check out a copy of The Book of Awesome from the library or elsewhere and then take part in the conversation!
