After 18 days, more than 2,400 votes, one hundred social media posts, nine entries, nine judges, and 12 hours of deliberation, the results are in! We are pleased to announce the following winners of the 2014 Win Your Wishlist $10k Giveaway.
With $10,000 in services from the Resonant Group of Companies to be won, entries were received from communities across Canada, with focus areas including youth, women, technology, community development, poverty, education, and more.
In round one, entrants rallied their customers and communities to support their pages with a vote. And did they vote! From Calgary to Sudbury to London – and even as far away as Lebanon – entrants received the love and support they needed to get to the next round. The top eight voted entries moved on to Round Two.
For the Resonant Solutions Judging Panel, the second round was tougher than anticipated, as all entrants were unique and passionate in their own way. The Panel reviewed, scored, discussed and debated the merits of each entry, resuling in three top entries and five runner-up entries.
The top three 2014 entries are:
- First Prize ($5,000 in services): My Canada Association
- Second Prize ($2,500 in services): The MakerBus
- Third Prize ($1,500 in services): I AM Compelled
Runner up prizes of $200 in services go to:
- Selah Vie Hair and Makeup Artistry
- Kassie Tyers Productions
- Sozo Jewellery Designs
- For The Love of Laundry
- 3rdRail Society
The biggest surprise of the Giveaway was late entry The MakerBus. With only 1h 28min before the closing deadline, The MakerBus submitted a compelling entry with a highly creative video (that may or may not have included a drone-filmed dream sequence). With only minutes to spare, they obtained enough votes to make it in the top eight, and carved out a place in the top three.
Many thanks to the organizations and others who promoted this giveaway and the entrants, including Communitech, TechAlliance, HalTech, WEtech Alliance and Awesome London Foundation. Thank you to those who viewed, voted, tweeted and shared.
And thank you to the daring entreprenuers, innovators and passionate dreamers who help make this world a better place.
