The University of Prince Edward Island has announced the winners of its "Win with UPEI" contest, which handed out $10,000 -- originally slated to purchase advertising -- in bursaries and other prizes. The contest website asked visitors to vote on their favourite student project, which earned the education faculty the largest proportion of bursary dollars for the highest number of votes. The contest also invited UPEI community members to submit a story, photo, or video online for a chance to earn prizes. A student from China won $1,000 for "Best Entry" for her story about her first moments on campus. One UPEI employee won $1,000 for the "Most Referred Entry," while another employee's entry was selected in th e $500 random draw. Other random draws took place for a stuffed toy version of Pride, the university's Panther mascot. UPEI News Release | Win with UPEI
