15th July - Congrats to the winners of the five BP $20 Vouchers
Many thanks to BP for coming up with some petrol vouchers as 3P prizes! As an environmentally sensitive company helping to look after our planet with initiatives like installing solar power in some of their garages, as well as an active interest in promoting business and life skills to young people, the my3P community has overwhelmingly said BP would make an ideal partner.
Here are the winners of the competition: Carl A. of Rangitoto College, Corey Buchan of Long Bay College, Dhanish Semar of Mt Roskill Grammar, Fiona McMillan of Long Bay College, Jono How of Westlake Boys
They each told us why they felt that BP are a good fit as a 3P partner, and you can read their full comments here...
