Some people like challenges and, for them, I offer two specifically relevant to real estate students at the University of Guelph and some other people.
1/ The Toronto Chapter of the Urban Land Institute is looking for ideas concerning the Toronto Waterfront. The deadline for registration is Feb. 21, 2014. $5000 is prize money available to the winner.
2/ Researchers at Ontario universities study an amazing range of topics and offer insights which should be better known to the general public. Therefore, you are invited to join a virtual scavenger hunt for the month of February. For a description see here. To enter and to learn about the prizes, see here.
Good luck on both of these challenges.
