Semi-finalists for Community Champions conservation awards[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]What do spawning fish, used clothing, kids on bikes and less-than-perfect cucumbers have in common?
They’re all key elements in videos, submitted by not-for-profit local groups across B.C., that have been short-listed to be in the running in BC Hydro’s Community Champions program. Fifteen semi-finalists are vying for five $10,000 conservation awards for 2015, and you can help determine the winners by voting today.
Voting by the public opened on October 15, 2015 and runs through until November 30, 2015. So if you haven’t already voted, please vote for a not-for-profit after viewing this year’s semi-finalists on our Community Champions site.
And if you’re a student, a parent or a kid who wants to get involved, get a classroom in on the voting. Classes who choose a semi-finalist to support can receive a $1,000 award for their school conservation project.
How the five winners are chosen
The three semi-finalists who get the greatest number of public votes at the close of the November 30 voting period earn $10,000 awards. And a judging panel makes the choice of the other two winners
