Seven get down and dirty for Fundy

Joint winner: The mud-covered human seven from Acadia University
Joint winner of the student-created sevens: The mud-covered scholars from Acadia University in Nova Scotia

Seven. It’s a magical number. That’s why the world is so excited about the New7Wonders of Nature campaign. In Canada, which is represented by the Bay of Fundy, universities were encouraged to create unique sevens with the goal of getting students to vote in the campaign. It worked.

“Having this swell of support from across the country is really important to our efforts in getting Canadians to vote in the campaign,” said Terri McCulloch, Executive Director of Bay of Fundy Tourism. “Not only is it wonderful to see the creative sevens and have students voting for us, but the timing is really important as we head towards the end of the campaign on November 11.”

Participating universities included: Acadia University, Mount Allison University, the University of Waterloo, the University of Calgary, the University of British Columbia and the University of Maine at Machias.

The student-created sevens were judged on their creativity and the way in which they engaged the student body. Entries included a human 7 made up of Fundy mud-covered Acadia students, to a giant inflatable 7 engineered by University of British Columbia students. The University of Calgary made a 7 from non-perishable food bank items, while Mount Allison hung a seven from the atrium of their student’s centre that was covered with photos of students with a seven.

The winning 7 was a tie between the mud-covered human seven from Acadia University and the giant inflatable 7 from the University of British Columbia.

“Students have a lot of reasons to be proud of Canada’s entry in the New7Wonders contest,” said McCulloch. “From the world’s highest tides to abundance of fossils and diverse marine life, the Bay of Fundy really deserves a place as one the New7Wonders of Nature.”
