Last year Ethiopian Airlines Canada announced Aaron and Jamie Collard as the grand prize winners of the social media contest “Celebrate 150”.

Then 12-year-old, Aaron from Burford, Ontario was chosen by Ethiopian Airlines Canada Facebook fans, as the most liked submission amongst the top five finalists in the Ethiopian Airlines Canada contest. Aaron and Jamie won a trip for (2) to Africa. The trip includes a 10-day vacation package from Toronto to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Ethiopian Airlines Cloud Nine business class, valued at $10,000.

Aaron and his family were presented with the tickets last year at Ethiopian Airlines Canada office from Birhan Abate Ethiopian Airlines Canada Country Manager and Ethiopian Airlines Sales Manager David Timmins, who will both greet the family on Saturday August 18th when the family arrives for their flight.

“We are looking forward to seeing Aaron and his family again. The family was so grateful and enthusiastic when we met them last year at our office,” said Abate.

“I hope they have a wonderful trip and we look forward to seeing all the pictures and of course videos too!”

Aaron was very active in his community and received a lot of support. He also gave back to his community by donating funds to a hospice his family supports in their community.

Ethiopian Airlines Canada hosted the contest on its Facebook page @EthiopianAirlinesCanada to mark Canada’s sesquicentennial. People were asked to upload a video describing what they love about Canada. The top five finalists were selected by the airline as the finalists received thousands of likes and shares during the duration of the contest.
