THESE community driven projects have been selected to win one of three ENERGIZE AWARDS
GOLD - $25,000 / SILVER - $15,000 / BRONZE - $10,000
For over a decade the Building Communities program has supported over 160 community-led projects in Calgary.
Without the vision of community members to improve their parks and green spaces many of these projects would simply not happen.
Endless volunteer hours are needed to plan, fundraise, and build these projects which provide Calgarians vibrant places to play and gather.
With the support of Pembina Pipeline Corporation, the ENERGIZE AWARDS will provide an additional $50,000 helping our communities reach their project goals faster. The ENERGIZE AWARDS will be awarded on September 21st at the ParksFest event, where attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their three favourite community park projects.
