We all know someone that we think deserves a little recognition and this summer is your chance to really give it to ’em! In celebration of the Calgary Bench and Picnic Table Dedication Program’s 30th anniversary, YYC will be giving away an incredibly unique prize to one lucky city slicker.

In partnership with the city, the Parks Foundation will grant a single person the chance to dedicate their own park bench to whoever, whenever, or whatever they want for 3 years. Whether it’s a pet, a loved one, an occasion, or a personal hero, the winner will be given the opportunity to honour someone or something special in a major way.

This plaque won’t be located in just any park either. They’re actually giving away some prime real-estate, folks! The chosen dedication will be placed on the iconic bench overlooking the city on Scotsman’s Hill in Ramsay and it really doesn’t get any better than that!

If you’d like to throw your hat into the ring, participants are asked to enter in one of three ways. You can:

  • Send a beautiful photo of any Parks Foundation dedication bench or picnic table in the city
  • Send a story about your existing dedication bench or picnic table
  • OR send a story about what winning a new dedication bench would mean to you

Once you’ve completed any of the above, submit your photo or story and an application form (which you can find here) to [email protected] with the subject line “Dedication Bench Giveaway.”

Entries will only be accepted for the Calgary dedication program’s contest until 11:59 pm. MT on May 31st and the winner will be chosen by random draw on June 1st! So check it out, folks! This is your chance to shine… (by association) because we’re not sure you can dedicate the bench to yourself. Good luck!
