Media Advisory - Canadian Tire presents Winnipeg class with 'Green School Challenge' Award

    Principal Sparling School class to be recognized for its commitment to
    the environment

    WINNIPEG, Feb. 10 /CNW/ -

    What:        Ms. Dorman's grade four class will receive Canadian Tire's
                 first 'Green School Challenge Award' in recognition of the
                 steps the students are taking inside and outside of the
                 classroom to help the environment. The 25 students submitted
                 an entry outlining their eco-friendly activities, which
                 included making shopping bags out of old towels and using
                 food waste to feed to their 'Red Wriggler Worms.' Join
                 Canadian Tire as we acknowledge the class's efforts with an
                 award presentation at the school.

    Background:  The 'Green School Challenge Award' was created by Canadian
                 Tire to recognize classes who are actively taking steps to
                 help the environment. One winning class was chosen in
                 Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Toronto. To
                 recognize each of the classes, Canadian Tire will be
                 planting trees throughout the school yard in the spring and
                 providing each of the winning kids with an eco-friendly gift
                 bag and pizza party.
