ERA’s 3rd Kids Poster Competition

It’s back! ERA is proud to announce its 3rd Kid’s Poster Competition that will launch this March. We are asking students in Elementary Schools across Canada to use their creative minds. This competition is designed to not only educate students on the importance of sustainability but to bring their vision of an ever-changing environment to paper.

How does it work?

To enter the contest, create a poster that best represents the ever-changing environment by combining the waste hierarchy known to many as “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”. Please relay the poster in some way to ERA’s mission statement.

ERA’s Mission Statement: To reduce electronic waste and the negative impact it has on our environment, and to reuse unwanted computers and related electronic equipment through recovery, refurbishment, and computer donation programs

This competition is vote based, which means the student with the most votes will win ― so you better stand out from the rest.

Who is eligible to participate?

To join the competition all you need to do is be a Student attending an Elementary School across Canada.

What will I win?

There will be 100 winners per 1000  schools that enter. The winner will receive a refurbished laptop. The winners will need to give ERA some time to provide them with the winning laptops.

How to enter?

To officially enter this competition your school must submit all of their student’s creative posters, add the name of your school, add the school address (no PO Box) and add the contact information of the teachers involved.

Notice that if incorrect information is given, the Electronic Recycling Association may not be able to reach you and will end up disqualifying the school.

When does it take place?

This contest is running from March 2nd, 2020 to May 20th, 2020. Schools can only submit their applications between the start and end date for this competition. If schools try to submit their posters before or after these dates they will not be considered eligible for the prize. Each student can only submit one poster.

  • The poster needs to be handmade (Use of paper, paint, pencils, and crayons)
