RICHMOND HILL, ON, Dec. 16 /CNW/ - Only one week left to enter the
Staples Canada Recycle For Education Computer Lab Contest - rewarding
the country's most eco-responsible school with a $50,000 computer lab.
"We have received a tremendous amount of support from schools throughout
the country, and delighted to learn about the environmental programs
that our young people are taking part in," says Steve Matyas, President
of Staples Canada.
The Computer Lab contest is the first of its kind for the office supply
retailer, who will determine the top five schools in January before
declaring its winner in the spring.
"This is a chance for schools to improve both their community, and their
school by winning this contest. We also feel this will get more people
motivated to start eco-responsible programs if they haven't already
done so," says Matyas.
Entries will be accepted until December 23, and will consist of a
500-word essay on a school's environmental activities which have been
in existence for at least one calendar year. For more information
