Here's how to earn votes and impress our judges.
You're the expert when it comes to knowing what your community needs to succeed. Here are some ideas to increase your chances of winning:
Promote your idea
Once you've registered and submitted your idea (learn how here) start raking in the votes by promoting it. We suggest taking a look at last year's winners for inspiration, and then following the steps below.
Harness the power of social media
Promoting your idea on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and all your favourite online communities is an easy and effective way to spread the word. Check out the tools provided on our website to get started.
Contact the press
Create a press kit and send it to community newspapers, radio and television stations to gain their support and generate excitement.
Keep updating your idea
A picture's worth a thousand words, and a video's made up of thousands of pictures, so you do the math. New photos and videos are a great way to remind visitors of your story throughout the competition.
