Loraas Earth Day 2019 Poster Contest!

March 25, 2019

FREE STUDENT CONTEST ALERT!!!

April is approaching us very quickly and you all know what this means – Earth Day 2019! Loraas Recycle is a huge supporter of Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd. In order to keep the celebration going and raise awareness on environmental topics, we will be hosting our annual Student Earth Day 2019 Poster Contest. This contest is available for all Saskatoon students Grade 3 to Grade 8 within the SPSD and GCSD (home-based education too!).  This year’s theme is, “Turn your SPOIL, into SOIL!”

Official Poster with rules and contest details can be found here.

Don’t worry teachers we didn’t forget about you! During April 15th until 22nd Loraas will be celebrating Earth Week on our social media channels. Each day we will feature different environmental topics, so follow along to learn how each one of us can be an Earth Hero too! To boot, we will be having a social media giveaway just for adults. So join us on Facebook and Instagram to potentially win some sweet eco-swag!
