Casorso Elementary has made it to the finals for the Superpower Your School contest.
Staples and Earth Day Canada teamed up to give away $25,000 in new technology to 10 eco-focused schools, coast to coast. Teachers and principals of publicly-funded schools were encouraged to share what their schools are doing to help the environment.
One hundred environmentally conscious Canadian schools are one step closer to winning $25,000 in technology. Staples Canada announced the regional finalists for its 2017 Superpower contest, which recognizes elementary and secondary schools that are helping the environment by implementing innovative eco-programs.
The 100 schools will now advance to a second round of judging where 10 schools from five different regions will be selected to receive $25,000 each towards the purchase of new technology from Staples Canada. The list of 100 finalists can be found at the Staples’ website. The winning schools announced April 22.
“Our judges were blown away by the quality and scale of some of the eco programs that these schools are implementing,” said Mary Sagat, president of Staples Canada. “Their passion for making a difference is inspiring. We thank all of the schools who entered the contest and congratulate the 100 finalists for their outstanding commitment to doing their part to improve the environment.”
