Last Friday, we drew a winner from 10 finalists in our One in a Billion contest: Mr. Jot Kailay!

The contest, organized together with the Province newspaper, celebrated SkyTrain’s milestone of one billion passenger trips this year.

Jot’s 100-word contest entry talked about a whole train joining in with a little girl’s rendition of “If You’re Happy And You Know It”: all of the 10 finalist entries can be found on the Province’s site.

And as the grand winner, Jot took home was $1000 and a year of transit passes. Our nine runners-up won a free monthly pass for up to three zones of travel. Thank you to everyone for entering and congratulations to the winners again!
