Contest seeks out No. 1 neighbourhood

Royal LePage wants to know what makes a neighbourhood great.

Royal LePage wants to know what makes a neighbourhood great.

Is it the big trees? The friendly people down the street? Kids playing outside? Or the great coffee shop only a block away?

The real estate company is hosting its second annual My Great Neighbourhood contest, asking Canadians to submit an entry online explaining why they love where they live.

The contest runs until Oct. 21 and the first place winner receives $20,000. There is also a second prize of $3,500 and a third prize of $1,500.

Winners are selected on how creative, original, informative, and compelling their entry is. The number of Facebook votes an entry receives is also considered.

Participants are asked to upload a video, or up to five images to the My Great Neighbourhood website.
