Chance for schools to win $25,000

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - HEALTH/COMMUNITY -

Ten en­vi­ron­men­tally con- scious schools across the coun­try will each re­ceive $25,000 worth of new tech­nol­ogy from Sta­ples Canada as part of The Su­per­power Your School Con­test.

Pub­li­cally funded schools are in­vited to en­ter the con­test at Sta­­erEco and share their eco ini­tia­tives for a chance to win. The Su­per­power Your School Con­test runs un­til Jan. 29.

“Teach­ers and stu­dents across the coun­try are pas­sion­ate about mak­ing a dif­fer­ence on the en­vi­ron­ment,” said Steve Matyas, pres­i­dent of Sta­ples Canada. “We’re hon­oured to re­ward them for their de­vo­tion to en­vi­ron­men­tal ste­ward­ship.”

The con­test is held in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Earth Day Canada, a na­tional char­ity that works di­rectly with thou­sands of teach­ers and schools to pro­vide en­vi­ron­men­tal re­sources and sup­port.

“Earth Day Canada is ex­cited to team up with Sta­ples again this year to reach and re­ward schools im­ple­ment­ing in­no­va­tive and far reach­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gage­ment projects. Earth Day Canada sup­ports The Su­per­power Your School Con­test by shar­ing in­for­ma­tion about the con­test to schools from coast to coast and as­sist with the judg­ing process.” Deb Don­caster, Pres­i­dent of Earth Day Canada.
