It’s back! ERA is proud to announce their 3rd Kid’s Poster Contest that will launch this October. 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 one winner from each school that participates and the winning student will receive a refurbished laptop.
