"Going Enviral" Facebook contest extended
PETERBOROUGH, ON — Enviro-Solutions Ltd. has announced that its "Going Enviral" contest on Facebook will be extended to June 15, 2012, according to a press release.
Public voting, in which Facebook visitors may vote on the videos, begins June 16 and ends July 13, 2012; the winner will be announced on July 16, 2012, the release stated.
According to the release, the contest invites North American schoolchildren, grades 7 through 12, to submit videos suggesting how they can make their schools and their world greener and more sustainable.
"Just recently, we have gotten more interest and several new videos," said Mike Sawchuk, vice president and general manager for Enviro-Solutions.
"Since there were technical glitches when the contest first started, we want to give everyone a little more time to send in a video," Sawchuk added.
Sawchuk says that about 25 youngsters submitted a video, but due to difficulties with the Facebook application used to conduct contest, some submissions failed, the release noted.
