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

November 06, 2015

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

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

 

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

We know that heating and cooling may not be everyone’s passion, but it is certainly a passion of ours to give back to communities like Waldorf. 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 accumulate wild plants and foods from nature.

This fall, they’ll hit the road for the first leg 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 all of the way.

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