Top 4 Finalists For January 2013!

This is it!  It's time for the first Awesome Calgary Thousand Dollar Thursday of 2013.

First off, here are Awesome Foundation - Calgary's Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions for January 2013, in no particular order:


  1. Calgary Repair Cafes
  2. Wood Book Auction Workshop
  3. Kensington Interaction
  4. Puppet Power


  • Fish Creek Terrain Park
  • All Charity Festival

BIG Congratulations to all of our Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions for January, and thank you so much to everyone who submitted an idea for this month!  (Tip:  Did you know that you can still submit your ideas for future months as well?  Just resubmit the form!)

January's  AF-Calgary Pitch Night is held at Chinook Mall!

  • Where:  Chinook Centre 6455 Macleod Trail SW
  • When:  Thursday, January 24.  Doors open at 6 p.m., pitches at 6:30 p.m. and AF-Calgary Awesome Hours/Meet & Mingle reception afterwards.

AF-Calgary Trustees will also be around before and after the event holding an informal Awesome Hours session where you can pick our brains about all things Awesome Foundation.  If you've ever had a burning question about how the whole Awesome movement works, or need some inspiration about what projects or ideas are eligible for funding through our chapter or have been funded around the world (To date:  59 chapters, 12 countries on 6 continents!), feel free to ask us or to speak with previous Top4 Finalists and AF-Calgary Fellows for advice at our event!

Finally, we're accepting submissions for our February 2013 micro-grant.  If you have an Awesome Idea that you'd like to submit for consideration for the new year, fill out this handy-dandy web form!

Hope to see you out tomorrow!
