'Awesome' is how Jill Monk describes the overwhelming response to the voting for the TSN/Kraft Celebration Tour Challenge.
Monk submitted the Elizabeth Swan Memorial Park in Clarenville to receive the $25,000 funding.
After making the top 20, Clarenville was paired with Canning, Nova Scotia for the final vote. Following 24 hours of on-line voting from July 10 to July 11, Clarenville was declared the winner. The Clarenville project garnered 385,717 votes over the 24-hour period.
The announcement was made earlier tonight on TSN.
The community will receive $25,000 to carry out upgrades to the Elizabeth Swan Memorial Park. How that money will be spent will be decided in the coming weeks.
