Staples Canada has teamed up with EcoKids and Earth Day Canada for the 10th annual Superpower your School Contest. Elementary and Secondary schools across Canada were invited to enter the contest for a chance to win one of 10 prizes of $20,000 in new technology from Staples

“Each year, the Superpower your School Contest recognizes schools and students that have implemented exceptional eco-initiatives to help their communities and the environment,” said David Boone, CEO of Staples Canada. “We are happy to continue empowering these students by rewarding them with the latest technology to support them as they continue to build their awareness, consciousness and understanding of the environment.”

To date, the contest has awarded 90 environmentally conscious schools with the latest technology to empower students to continue learning and developing their passion and awareness for the environment. Each year, the contest receives hundreds of entries from schools across Canada, sharing inspiring stories of what their teachers and students are doing to create a more sustainable future in their community.

The contest is held in collaboration with national charities, EcoKids and Earth Day Canada. EcoKids offers programs and resources for children, parents, educators, and communities in Canada to engage in environmental education. Earth Day Canada helps people and organizations reduce their environmental impact.

“We are thrilled to be working with Staples Canada again to celebrate the inspiring environmental initiatives taking place in schools across the country,” said Cristina Greco, interim executive director of EcoKids. “We are proud to support innovative approaches to stewardship and reward the valuable environmental work of Canadian schools and their communities.”
