To encourage you to change your habits we launched a CONTEST: Here are the rules : Who can participate ? "Teach your parents" is a contest between schools in the Baie-des-Chaleurs to encourage youth and their families to reduce their waste at home. Your school is a partner in the contest. The school will send e-mails that explain how to reduce waste at home. Families who want to participate, register for the contest and make a commitment to make small daily changes that are easy to accomplish to decrease their overall waste at home.
For example, your commitment could be to start composting, or make a zero waste lunch, or recycle everything that you can recycle…choose a small gesture that you can do every day. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to improve!
How to win the contest? The school that wins will have the most families that register for the contest. The more families that register the greater the chance your school will win! The prizes 1st prize : $ 1 000 2nd prize : $ 500 3rd prize : $ 250 Judges prize: $ 250 The prizes are given to the winning schools so they can create environmental initiatives of their choice.
