The Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions for our Second Anniversary!

Only a few days away now until we celebrate our Second Anniversary, so without further ado, here are our Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions for April 2013, in no particular order:

Top4 Finalists

  1. Pavo Concertus by Isabel Chan:  "Transform a pickup truck into a peacock pipe organ with pitch-synchronized LEDs."
  2. Dartwars by Ryan McEathron:  "A one-month long non-stop Nerf fight."
  3. Give A Mile by Kevin Crowe:  "Give a Mile is a Not-For-Profit looking to enable people to visit terminally ill friends and family through micro-donations of travel points."
  4. 24 Hour Clarkson by Seth Leon:  "One Band (Jeremy Clarkson, Ben and Seth Leon), 24 consecutive performances in 24 different locations in 24 hours."

Honourable Mentions

  • Sprout by Stu Mason:  "We educate and enable Calgarians to make greener everyday purchases!  We're striving to make Calgary a future sustainability leader!"
  • Sharing Stories by River Wearmouth:  "Sharing personal stories and creating a connected community."
  • Fair Trade Calgary by Janalee Morris-Wales:  "Fair Trade Calgary will host a fair trade film screening and fair trade market to promote World Fair Trade Day."
  • Roller Ball or Pedal Ball by Kevan Leycraft:  "A seven-foot globe a person a person gets inside, sits down and pedals!"
  • Yarn Wristband Machine by Jason Bedard:  "I want to build a machine that makes event entry wristbands from yarn and then automatically ties this fibre creation to a person's wrist."
  • THE REGENERATOR by Michael Kho:  "A generator that requires no gas!"

Please join us as we celebrate two whole years of awesomeness in our city.  We'll have a few of our past winners helping us with the festivities, live entertainment, and of course, what kind of a birthday party would this be if we didn't have a little cake?

A reminder that we're now accepting submissions for the month of May.  If you'd like to submit an idea to Awesome Calgary for consideration, fill out this handy-dandy web form!  The May submission deadline is Friday, May 10, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.

And finally, there's still time to be a Guest Trustee for our Second Anniversary!  A Guest Trustee gets all of the voting rights that our normal full-time Trustees get, but only for one month and we still have a couple of slots available for this occasion.  If you're interested in participating in this very special role at this month's event, let us know! (PS: We're also on the look out for full-time Trustees too, plus a bunch of volunteers to help us dominate year three!)
