The ‘Spark Award’ was awarded to Vennessa English for her idea of “Helpful Contacts and Phone Numbers”. There were two ‘Hot Iron Awards’ for this round, which went to Glenys Serslev for her idea of “First World Fun – Game Console Library” and Linda Farley’s “Client Personal Business Cards” idea. Both’ Hot Iron Awards’ will be further developed by Rise.
