Local Schools Encouraged to Participate in Ugliest Schoolyard Contest

For Immediate Release
Monday, March 20, 2017

Could your schoolyard be greener, healthier and more student-friendly?

VETAC, Greater Sudbury's Regreening Advisory Panel, invites local schools to enter the annual Ugliest Schoolyard Contest. Schools can win a prize package worth thousands of dollars to transform their school grounds! 

The deadline to enter is May 11, 2017. Entry forms, contest guidelines and information on past winners can be found at www.greatersudbury.ca/VETAC. 

The Ugliest Schoolyard Contest was established in 2005. Since then, 41 local schools have received assistance in regreening their schoolyards. More than a dozen local businesses, organizations and volunteers participate each year.

Questions regarding the contest can be directed to Wayne Hugli at whugli@hotmail.com, or Tina McCaffrey at tina.mccaffrey@greatersudbury.ca.

This contest is made possible by financial contributions of $20,000 from Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations, a Glencore Company (Sudbury INO).

The Ugliest Schoolyard Contest was initiated in 1998 by the Canadian Biodiversity Institute and Earth Day Ottawa. For further information, visit www.biodiversityonline.ca.
