Just before the announcement of the winners of the 2011 Ideas Competition at Nova Scotia Community College Burridge Campus, representatives of the college offered congratulations to all of the participants, citing their attitude and the innovative nature of their ideas.
The competition winners were announced March 14 during a noon-hour ceremony at Burridge, where top honours went to the team of Kristin Rhyno and Crystal Vautour.
In addition to winning a prize of $1,000, the two qualified for the next round of competition. This was to be held in Halifax and feature winners from other NSCC campuses. The champion from that round moves on to a provincial competition against winners from Nova Scotia universities.
