It is not too late to get in an entry for the City of Maple Ridge Innovation Challenge.
The deadline has been extended for the second annual contest that awards businesses and organizations that foster innovation and an innovative culture in their companies.
The prize for first place is $4,000, $2,000 for second spot, and $1,000 for third.
According to contest organizers, a culture of innovation is one which actively encourages and supports creative, even unorthodox, thinking from their people, and allows innovation to flow through it.
The contest was launched last year and the Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie Seniors Network took top spot, followed by Big Feast Bistro in second, and The Salvation Army Ridge Meadows in third.
To qualify, a business or organization must be based in Maple Ridge, and have an active business license. The business must actively support and encourage innovation.
All finalists will be asked to submit a 1-2 minute video presentation that describes the innovative culture in their organization.
The new deadline to submit an entry is Sunday, Aug. 21.
