What are the prizes available to be won?
Three regional winners won $8,000 for their project. There was one regional winner for Alberta, one regional winner for Saskatchewan, and one regional winner for Manitoba.
Of the three regional winners, one will have the opportunity to win the grand prize, an additional $20,000 for their project.
