Oxford Properties sponsors NXT City Prize
Toronto-based real estate company Oxford Properties Group has signed-on as the presenting sponsor of a contest promotion called the 2015 NXT City Prize. This is the second year of the initiative, which is operated by development consulting firm Distl. The contest invites people under the age of 35 to submit ideas for ways to improve public space in the City of Toronto. A judging panel will select the winners based on creativity, originality, theme and feasibility. The grand prize winner will receive $5,000 and the possibility of their idea being implemented. Category prizes will also be awarded for best submission by an individual or team under the age of 18, best technology-focused public space idea, best idea for energy and sustainability in public space, and best idea for a Neighbourhood Improvement Area. Entries will be open until July 31.
"Engaging with the communities we serve is something we are very proud of, and a tradition that has been a part of our culture for over 55 years," said Blake Hutcheson, president and CEO of Oxford Properties. "Oxford is excited to support the NXT City Prize and the big ideas that will shape this city."
