Announcing the finalists for Hyperlocal: vote for your favourite!

hl-finalists-3.jpgWe asked you to tell us your stories of changing neighbourhoods, and you did. We received hundreds of wonderful stories from across the country, and they're all on our interactive story map

Today, Canada Writes—along with our Hyperlocal collaborators, the National Film Board of Canada—bring you the finalists for the challenge. 
The 37 finalists were selected from the over 450 entries pinned on the Hyperlocal map. And we're asking you, Canada, to vote for your favourite stories to crown Canada's Choice!

Starting today, you will have until noon (ET) on Wednesday, May 22nd to vote for your favourite shortlisted story. Although the results of this vote will not have any impact on the final decision made by the jury, the winner of the public vote will get a CBC/NFB Swag Bag (including a retro CBC messenger bag,  a Bear71 t-shirt and a Canada Writes notebook) as well as bragging rights, and the knowledge that his/her story was voted as Canada's Choice.  

To vote for your favourite story, click on the corresponding link below and then click on the thumbs-up icon underneath the story title to "like" the story. (And feel free to comment while you're at it!) The story on the shortlist with the most thumbs up wins the public vote. 


The finalists stories are (in alphabetical order):
