Voting now open for the Aviva Community Fund Grant
The City of Sault Ste. Marie’s splash pad sub-committee has applied for project funding from the Aviva Community Fund grant for the Bellevue Park splash pad project. Part of the decision for funding however, is based on you!
Beginning today, community members are urged to vote for the Bellevue Park splash pad. Anyone registered with the Aviva Community Fund has 18 votes that they may use at any time from October 10 –19, 2017 to vote for their favourite idea(s). Residents are being asked to cast all 18 votes for the Sault Ste. Marie splash pad. Here’s how to vote:
1) Visit www.saultstemarie.ca/votesplashpad
2) Click the ‘Register’ button to get your 18 votes.
3) Register by creating an account or using your Facebook login.
4) Cast all 18 votes to support the Sault Ste. Marie Splash Pad.
5) Click ‘submit votes’.
“This is a great way to create positive change in our community. We need to be one of the top 15 ideas that receive the most votes in order to become a finalist,” states Virginia McLeod, Manager of Recreation and Culture. “We would then be evaluated by an independent panel of judges who choose the grand prize winners that could receive up to $100,000. Support from our community is essential.”
The competition is open to both customers and non-customers of Aviva and its subsidiaries. Those under the age of 18 must have approval by a parent or guardian and indicate that such approval has been granted in order to participate when registering. Registrants under the age of 18 years old may be asked to provide written evidence of parent/guardian approval at Aviva’s discretion.
You can help promote the idea by sharing the link on social media and telling everyone including friends and family to vote. Sault Ste Marie, it’s time to support your community and make a splash!
