Students Environmental Initiative Contests

January 18, 2017

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 from across the city.  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 is Earth Day contests annually. Watch for posters around your school in April or check back to our website for more details!
