Local Schools Encouraged to Participate in Ugliest Schoolyard Contest

Mar 21, 2018

Could your schoolyard be greener, healthier and more student-friendly?
VETAC, the City of 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 10, 2018. Entry forms, contest guidelines and information on past winners can be found at www.greatersudbury.ca/VETAC.

 Greater Sudbury’s Ugliest Schoolyard Contest was established in 2005. Since then, 43 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.
