As of June 1st a little slice of Niagara College will be for sale all over Canada. Partnering with Tre Stelle to host this year’s grand prize winners of the Great Canadian Cheese Sweepstakes for 2017, NC’s Canadian Food and Wine Institute (CFWI) prepares for their logo to travel across the nation. The contest’s online submission site is ready and waiting for these specially marked packages to hit shelves on June 1st. Available in stores like Metro and Sobeys, the packages and their CFWI logos are sure to fly off shelves.
From November 17th-19th the sweepstakes’ grand prize winners will be treated like royalty throughout the Niagara region. Arriving Friday from across Canada, these lucky few will stay at Niagara-On-The-Lake’s enchanting Vintage Inns. The extravagant weekend will be filled with luxury meals, helicopter rides, and a culinary class put on by the CFWI- located on Niagara College’s Niagara-on-the-Lake campus. Wine, fine dining, and adventure is on the horizon for these sweepstakes winners.
“This weekend will show (the rest of the nation) what the Niagara region has to offer,” said Jeffery Steen, CFWI’s manager of corporate training and industry engagement at Niagara College. Steen helped to construct the proposal that ensured Niagara College had a place on the winner’s maps. “These opportunities are extremely important as we continue to tell our NC story around the globe. The weekend will showcase the best of the Niagara Region, as well as our phenomenal training facilities here on campus”.
The grand prize winners of the event will be announced in October- until then, keep your eyes out for those winning cheeses.
