Win free rent for a year with Hollyburn Properties

What would you do with free rent for a year? Hollyburn Properties, a national property management and development company, is seeking to reward one lucky person with free rent for a whole year in a premier one-bedroom Hollyburn apartment in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto or Ottawa. Celebrating 40 years of building rental communities across Canada, the family-run company actively supports a mission of community service and outreach. The Hollyburn Free Rent Contest is being launched to celebrate those individuals in Canada who are likewise dedicated to social impact through community involvement.  

 “The objective of the Free Rent Contest is to reward an individual who participates above and beyond in community service,” says Allan Wasel, Hollyburn General Manager. “We feel strongly that community values help foster healthy and sustainable living environments. Hollyburn supports a number of charity partnerships and sponsorship programs, and in doing so, seeks to positively impact every neighbourhood we are privileged to be a part of.”

The Hollyburn Free Rent Contest launches on September 15th, with submissions open until October 31st, 2015. Participants must describe how they, or someone they know, contribute to building their community.

Examples of community-building include volunteering, involvement in non-profit organizations, or participation in projects with positive social impacts. Entrants are encouraged to supplement their submission with pictures, videos, letters of reference or any additional documents that support their nomination. A judging panel will carefully select three top finalists, whose profiles will be publicly voted upon the week of November 9th until November 30th to determine the recipient of free rent for a year. The prize-winner will be announced early December, 2015. For details and guidelines, watch the YouTube contest video, and visit the Hollyburn Free Rent Contest website:
