Staples Canada begins Superpower Your School contest
Office supply retailer chain Staples Canada has begun a contest promotion aimed at students called "Superpower Your School." The initiative is being conducted in collaboration with charitable organization Earth Day Canada. Schools can enter the national contest online at <http://www.staples.ca/powereco> by submitting their ideas for ecological initiatives. Ten winning schools will each receive $25,000 worth of technology from Staples. The promotion, previously known as the "Staples Canada Recycle for Education Computer Lab Contest," is now in its seventh year. It will run until Jan. 31, 2017, supported by social media activities.
"From growing their own food to banning plastic water bottles and even making their own organic lip balm, students and teachers across the country are innovating to make a difference on our environment," said Mary Sagat, president of Staples Canada. "We call these students and teachers 'ecovators,' and what better way to reward them than with access to the latest tech to enhance their education programs."
