Announcing our February 2013 AF-Calgary $1,000 Thursday Venue!

For our final Thousand Dollar Thursday event of 2012, we hosted it in partnership with the Calgary Public Library at their Central location as part of their One Book, One Calgary program.  If you missed it, check out this Awesome story that the Calgary Journal did last year, or our recap of it on Storify.

This month, we're pleased to announce that we're teaming up with the Calgary Public Library and the Calgary Public Library Foundation again to throw another one, this time at the Memorial Park Library, located in the heart of Calgary's Beltline.

Calgary's Memorial Park Library opened on January 2, 1912 and was Alberta's first major public library building.  Now over 100 years old, what better way to help kick off year 101 than with showcasing four Awesome Ideas and awarding one of them $1,000 in no-strings-attached cash on the spot?

Like our November 2012 event, a few of our previous submitters will be on hand showcasing some of their Awesome Success (whether they won the $1,000 or not), and we'll be holding Awesome Hours before and after the event where you can meet some of our Trustees and learn more about the AF movement (as well as sign up if you're interested in joining Team AF-Calgary as a Trustee or Volunteer), and the library will also be providing some light refreshments as well.

As always, our events are 100% open to the public, so we hope to see you there!

Finally, we're now accepting submissions for our March 2013 prize.  The application deadline for next month is Sunday, March 10 at 11:59 p.m.  To submit an idea to AF-Calgary for consideration, simply fill out this handy-dandy web form!
