Earth Day Essay Contest

Are you passionate about the environment and like to write?

Ross Road students who demonstrate a commitment to the environment could win their school a brand new set of computers.

Staples Canada is donating computer labs, valued at $25,000 each, to 10 elementary and secondary schools across the country. The program is part of the company’s 2013 Recycle for Education Computer Lab Contest, this year presented in collaboration with Earth Day Canada.

  • To enter, submit a 500-word essay on how your school has become environmentally responsible. For every entry, Staples will donate $25 to Earth Day Canada. Only one student from each school can apply, so we’ll be collecting essays and submitting just the very best one.
  • Submit entries here or drop at the school office by Wednesday, February 20, 2013
  • Winners will be announced in early April.
