Thank you to all of you who voted to keep The W.I.N.D. Story Project in the top 10. I feel very satisfied with that achievement given that, as one of the finalists, CST Consultants will now award The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) a finalist prize of $1,500. CCBC does very important work in terms of encouraging, promoting and supporting the reading, writing, illustrating and publishing of Canadian books for young readers.

While The W.I.N.D. Story Project wasn’t one of the top 3 category winners, you can check out the Ideas who did achieve this HERE. I know you’ll agree that all of them are really wonderful ideas that will benefit many children, so there are literally thousands of winners with these final results.
Since the money being awarded was so significant, I had put together a presentation for CST in the hopes of conveying more of the really wonderful outcomes and insights The W.I.N.D. Story Project generated. After dropping the presentation by their offices, I learned that the judging panel wasn’t allowed to see it as everyone’s ideas had to be evaluated on a level playing field (i.e. the write up on the CST page).
That makes sense to me. However, there really is some fantastic material in the presentation, so I thought I’d share it with any of you who might be interested. You can access it HERE or by clicking the presentation cover below.
Thank you again for your support. I hope you enjoyed the ride with me along the way!
