Earth Day Canada and Staples Canada have announced the top 100 finalists for their annual Superpower your School contest. Check out the list of 100 eco-conscious finalists from schools across Canada. Is your child’s school one of them?
The final judging, led by a panel of volunteer organizations interested in sustainability, is taking place in the weeks leading up to Earth Month. The ten winners will be announced in early April- five elementary and five secondary schools.
Common themes among last year’s winners include solving a community or environmental issue and environmental activism-view the eco-champions here. Deb Doncaster, President, Earth Day Canada, says, “Through projects and programs like these, we are getting closer to a safer and eco-friendlier environment, which in itself is something to celebrate.”
Winning schools each receive a $20,000 Staples shopping spree for new technology products. David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada says,“It’s a great pleasure for us to award the next generation of environmental leaders with the equipment they need to keep growing and learning to be environmentally responsible.”
We’re looking forward to viewing the winning innovative projects. Stay tuned!
