University students across Canada are getting behind an effort to promote the Bay of Fundy in the New7Wonders of Nature contest.
Students created giant 7s last week in a bid to generate more publicity over the bay. Mount Allison students did their part last Thursday, creating a massive photo collage in a 7-shaped design and unveiling it at the student centre.
The grassroots campaign is a way of creating national awareness across Canada for the entry in the New7Wonders of Nature Campaign
Each "7" creation has a QR code attached that students can scan with their phones giving them immediate access to the VoteMyFundy.com website. The objective is to encourage all students to vote and secure a spot for the Bay of Fundy in the New7Wonders of Nature.
Other universities taking part included Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S., McGill in Montreal, the University of Calgary and the University of British Columbia.
The global competition is vote-based and people can go online to vote at www.new7wonders.com. The Bay of Fundy is Canada's only finalist in the contest, with voting open until Nov. 11.
