Subject: Chance to Win a Hybrid Bus and Classroom Supplies/ Une chance de gagner un autobus scolaire hybride et des fournitures scolaires

Did you know that one school bus has the capacity to take 36 passenger cars off the road, for a total of 1.9 million cars in Canada a year! That means over 1.3 billion litres of passenger car fuel are saved in Canada every year by students riding school buses.

Green facts like these are why school bus manufacturer IC BusTM is hosting the Canada's Greenest SchoolTM Contest. The contest invites school children to use their creativity to describe what they would do if they were in charge of making their school a greener and more eco-friendly place. Students have the chance to win $3,000 to be put towards his/her education and the school of the winning student will win a hybrid school bus from IC Bus (a $200,000 value) and a green audit of the school from a LEED accredited professional. The teacher of the winning entrant will also receive $500 for environmentally friendly class supplies.

To enter, students must submit an entry in the form of a photo collection, an essay, video, music, photos or any other creative format. Individual or group/classroom entries are encouraged.

If you would like to encourage students from your school to participate, please visit


• A call for entries from Canadian Olympic figure skater, Josee Chouinard.

• Printable materials for your classroom including posters and eco-educational class activities.

• Environmental facts and figures that can help inspire students to take action!

• Details about the contest and the Official Rules.

Don’t be tardy—the deadline to enter is April 5, 2010!

Good luck!
