The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

The dead­line for the sixth an­nual Su­per Power Your School con­test is close.

Through the con­test, Sta­ples and Earth Day Canada will give away $250,0000 worth of new tech­nol­ogy to eco­log­i­cally in­no­va­tive schools in Canada.

That’s $25,000 in new tech­nol­ogy for 10 schools, coast to coast. Prince Ed­ward Is­land schools are in­vited to en­ter.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now be­ing ac­cepted un­til mid­night on Jan. 29.

Teach­ers and prin­ci­pals of pub­licly funded schools are en­cour­aged to share what their schools are do­ing to help the en­vi­ron­ment.

Ex­am­ples of projects that helped pre­vi­ous win­ning schools stand out: build­ing a geodome; main­tain­ing a sus­tain­able green house; plant­ing trees and plants in lo­cal parks. Visit www.sta­ples.ca/pow­ereco for more in­for­ma­tion and to en­ter.
