"As one of North America's largest heating and air conditioning brands, we are committed to being experts in home comfort," said Dave Moody, director of marketing for Service Experts. "This contest is a way to help someone else gain expertise in a field they are passionate about."

- Janice from Missouri is a retired teacher, ready for her second act! "I now have time to pursue a life-long goal of becoming a professional cake decorator. I am self-taught and have provided over 25 beautiful wedding cakes to family and friends."
- Shauna in Alberta hopes to become an expert in cartoon voice-overs. "I need to fund a demo and a trip to LA to audition. I have everything lined up - just can't afford to go. My son has special needs so all our resources go towards medication and therapy. To hopefully one day voice my son's favorite cartoon would be the best thing to ever happen to me!"
- Bob in Dallas pictures himself as a portrait photographer. "I will use the winnings to get my masters degree in photography. I want to pursue this to help people capture memories of their loved ones and families."
