Saskatoon students contribute to a greener environment by making a commitment to recycling the right way on Earth Day. In honour of Earth Day on April 22, Loraas encouraged students from Grades 3 to 8 to participate and take a stand to get back to basics: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Each year Loraas Recycle holds an Earth Day poster contest for the Public and Greater Catholic School Divisions. The 2017 contest theme was “Lend a Hand to Save the Land”, and brought in 312 multi-talented entries. Student participation and enthusiasm about recycling is a great example of how Saskatoon can help create a sustainable environment for generations to come.
Students and Teachers don’t fret if you missed this year’s contest! Loraas Recycle holds student contests annually. These include the Earth Day poster contest in April and Sustainability Week contest in November. Watch for posters around your school these months or check back to our website for more details.
