E3 Awards Ceremony
The E3 Challenge has finally concluded after a grueling two months of blood, sweat, and tears. The participants all reaped their rewards one-by-one as they were called to receive their certificates of completion of the program, with a few lucky teams winning each of the three individual challenges.
Participants who went above and beyond their simple roles as team members were recognized and presented with their team MVP Award as well. The first challenge with NIU! saw Team C.L.E.A.R. take the prize, and the second challenge with Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada saw Team Kryptomite take the stage. Finally, the third and last challenge with Sun Life Financial center 14 revealed Team C.L.E.A.R. once again taking the win. Taking two of the three challenges, it was clear that the winning team was also Team C.L.E.A.R.!
Nothing worth achieving comes easy, and the participants and organizing team of The E3 Challenge 2014 have come to know this to be true. We hope that this lesson helps all involved with The E3 Challenge this year, that we all now have the confidence to face any challenge life throws our way, and that everyone has enjoyed the program as much as we have had organizing throughout this E3 year. A big warm welcome and congratulations to the E3 family of 2014!
