Are you active in your community and also a bit of a poet? If so, you could be Canada's next "community idol". The Vancouver Foundation, together with Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), are looking for individuals from across Canada who are active in their communities to star in a national TV and radio advertising campaign. "British Columbians are passionate advocates for their communities," said Faye Wightman, president and CEO of Vancouver Foundation. She said she hopes many from this province will apply. The goal of the campaign, according the contest press release, is to "show Canadians how our communities make us who we are." Winners will be flown to Toronto to record a poetry-slam style anthem about community that will be used in the production of the television and radio spots. Those interested are asked to upload a spoken-word audition poem to YouTube by Aug. 30. More details on how to enter can be found at communityfoundations. ca/talentsearch.
