The Aviva Community Fund charity contest has just wrapped up the semi-finals and finalists will be announced on December 17th. Judging will then take place starting on December 20th, with the Grand-prize winning ideas being announced on January 29th, 2013.
Once the ideas were submitted, voting was open to the Canadian public. To vote, all you needed to do was register on the Aviva Community Fund website (either through the website itself or by using your facebook account). You have 15 votes per round, and you may vote on as many ideas as you like - although you may only vote for each idea once per day (votes also can't be taken back once they have been cast, so make sure you use them exactly how you want to)
One of the school's in my community submitted an idea for a playground (right now, they have a large area of sand, but no playground for the kids) that is the idea that I supported because it is in my home-town; kids need a place to play. What were some of your favorite ideas - did you vote for them?
