Not a Prize Winner, But Still A Winner to Us
Hello from the Media and Fundraising Teams.
Did anyone check out the big announcement today? The TD Friends of the Environment Go Green Challenge prizes were announced on twitter this morning.
Unfortunately, our video was not in the top three. While we’re sad that we didn’t win, we are thrilled that we had the opportunity to participate and learn from the experience.
Furthermore, the video may become a valuable piece for promoting and telling others what the Green Corridor is all about. We’re hoping pieces of it are usable for grant applications, and that it will be displayed on the main campus’s video screens soon.
We’d like to thank everyone who voted for our video. It was wonderful to connect with so many people who share our vision and hopes for this project. Your support of our ongoing endeavours is priceless!
Green Works Exhibit
The Fundraising Team ( Alexa and Natasa) and the Media Team (Catrina and Jaclyn) merger together during reading week to work on the Green Works Exhibit. We had a lot of fun working together. The exhibit was from 2 pm to 6 pm, in the Cleary, St. Clair Center for the Arts.

A big thank you to Alexa’s sister for making the beautiful seed paper
Take a pencil and sign up for our mailing list
The seed cards were a big hit! We also got lots of positive feedback on the video, and about 60 names and email addresses to begin our mailing list.
Our first sign up
Catrina and Jaclyn were tremendous in organizing all the things we had into a cohesive display and documenting the experience. Alexa and Natasa were wonderful spokespersons and counted 207 people in total that we spoke to over the course of the afternoon. Alexa spent some time speaking with the other exhibitors as well, and made a few promising contacts with a solar panel organization and another networking group.
