Experts Creating Experts Content Awarding $25,000 to Two Winners

November 06, 2015

We all have interests that we develop during our lives. For some it may be a love of landscaping, for others possibly it’s a sport, or if you’re anything like us, it’s heating and cooling. Just like we enjoy working to keep you comfortable throughout the year, we also love helping others go after their passions to become experts.

Recently, we finished up our “Experts Creating Experts” contest in which we gave away $25,000 to gain expertise and education in one area you are most passionate about. Ideas ranged from lifelong dreams of becoming a chef to developing a line of children’s books to encourage. The Grand Prize winners, Mike and Jillian, entered to become expert foragers, collecting wild plants and foods from nature. After being one of five finalists selected from a group of judges, the public voted through Facebook and now, Mike and Jillian are traveling all around New York and Massachusetts to visit with artisan farmers, a dairy farm and even a distillery.

 

Be sure to watch the video above and follow them on their trip!

We know that heating and cooling probably isn’t everyone’s passion, but it is definitely a passion of ours to give back to communities like Roanoke. After all, you have helped make us the heating and cooling experts in this neck of the woods. And for that, we thank you.


Remember them?

Mike and Jillian won $25,000 in Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning’s Experts Creating Experts Contest so they could become expert foragers. Foragers gather wild plants and foods from nature.

This fall, they’ll head out for the first stint of their trip. Mike & Jillian will be driving around New York and Massachusetts meeting small artisan farmers, checking out the High Lawn Farms Dairy, working at the first legal distillery in the Berkshires since Prohibition and learning about extracts from a company in business for 125 years. They’ll even forage for mushrooms. And we’ll be with them, sharing their adventures with you every step of the way.

In January 2016, we’ll head out to California for the other part of their adventure.
