We are running a poster contest for elementary students again this year for Earth Day (April 22nd) as well as offering an online all-ages Earth Day presentation via Zoom.

The poster contest runs from April 1st to 30th , 2021 – open to all students K-8, must be 8.5”x11” and submitted electronically to communications@loraas.ca 5 winners will be selected and awarded a Bluetooth speaker! The theme is “What can I recycle?” We encourage students to know the categories of materials that belong in their recycling cart and display them in their posters.
