Vote for these 5 VIP Aussie Adventure contenders from TalentEgg


A few weeks ago, Lauren announced the Tourism Australia and CampusPerks VIP Aussie Adventure contest, and we also mentioned that the first five students or recent grads who mentioned that they heard about the contest on would each receive a $50 gift certificate from Chapters Indigo.

We are pleased to announce the following TalentEgg-ers as our Top 5 contenders.

Please show your support and vote for one of them today—there is now only one day left to enter the contest and complete the first round of voting before the entries are narrowed down 30 finalists!

Brittany Thordarson

Brittany Thordarson from Oshawa, Ont., is currently a fourth-year honours biology student at the University of Waterloo. In her 60-second video, Brittany recites a fun poem from her bathtub (which happens to have been transformed into an exotic Australian beach scene) explaining what she will do if you send her to Australia.

Daniel Clarke

Third-year York University business administration student Daniel Clarke, a Scarborough, Ont., native, says he’s never travelled, but he’s been dying to visit Australia since the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympic Games and scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef and exploring the Australian outback have been on his “bucket list” for a while now.

Idriss Bouhmouch

Idriss Bouhmouch, originally from Pointe-Claire, Que., and currently a fourth-year Queen’s University commerce student, is a big fan of Australia. He recently completed an exchange to the University of Western Australia and has been dying to go back to hang out with all the amazing people he met there during his exchange.

Sydney Peck

Wilfrid Laurier University cheerleader and second-year communications student Sydney Peck now lives in Oakville, Ont., but she has spent plenty of time living and travelling abroad. She says her marketing and promotion skills make her a good candidate for sharing the opportunities Australia has to offer her peers here in Canada.

Samantha Begelfor
