Contest: Meet (and get mentored by) Emily Haines

Last week we told you about ROOM FOR THOUGHT, a new initiative by American Express, that offers the chance for a lucky Canadian to meet and get mentored by Craig and Marc Kielburger to bring an idea to life. Did you also know that Metric's Emily Haines and Les Stroud of Survivorman are also involved in the program?

Details of ROOM FOR THOUGHT are on the this Facebook page where you can go ahead and submit your great idea. Here's a video from Emily Haines with her thoughts on this initiative:

Of course, don't forget about the Kielburger brothers who we mentioned last week. There's a video from them too:

To enter this contest, just submit your idea here. There will be three winners, one in each of these categories: Community, Travel/Adventure and Music so be sure to specify which one you're submitting for.

blogTO is a promotional supporter for ROOM FOR THOUGHT. The ROOM FOR THOUGHT will be located inside the Four Seasons Centre for Performing Arts during November 2011. The winner's idea will be showcased for a three day period with the venue being open to the public. American Express will also help make the idea an ongoing reality by offering the winner $10,000.
