Our 50 Acts of Green grand prize winners:

We've had many fantastic (and inventive) submissions. Congratulations to our grand prize winners: Millicent Dianne Geonzon (Bachelor of Commerce student) and Kasia Briegmann-Samson (Assessment Advisor) who took home generous gift certificates from the Chefs' House and the college bookstore.

The campaign's "honourable mentions" are: Ann Crissel Darroles (Game Development student) for most postings by a student, and Elena Deneva (Digital Media Specialist), for most postings by an employee.

The Green Team would like to thank all of the members of the college community who helped make this campaign a smashing success!

We wanted to share some memorable moments from the campaign right here with you.
