Pepsi Refresh Project - Local Submission


Pepsi is giving away grants to fund “great ideas” and one idea from our region is in the running.

The “Create a book compiling the stories of immigrants to Fort McMurray” project by Amanda Nielsen is one of the potential ideas that the public can vote.

“This book project will capture a better picture of why people immigrate to Canada and in particular to Alberta's northern oil sands community, Fort McMurray. This community is very high-paced with a large turnover in residents. Knowing why people come here and what appeals to them is important in opening dialogue between people that might not otherwise take the time to do so.”

If this project is one of the top two voted 'ideas', it will receive a grant for $25,000.00 to help fund its completion.
