The My Parks Pass program, which offers free entry to Parks Canada places for all grade 8/secondary 2 students, has launched the fifth edition of the Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest. With the support of Air Canada, this year’s winning grade 8/secondary 2 class will visit Jasper National Park on a five-day all-expense-paid trip.
We are striving to make this year’s contest the best one yet, engaging the greatest number of Canadians ever. In order to reach as many people as possible, we need your help! I invite you to use or adapt the content below and send it to your partners, networks, members, and professional and personal contacts. If appropriate, you may also wish to post on your own website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. And please don’t limit this message to teacher networks. Everyone knows a student or teacher in grade 8 / secondary 2 – so the more people who know, the better!
To enter the contest, grade 8 / secondary 2 classes must pick a Parks Canada place that they believe is extraordinary and create a one-minute video that demonstrates why their chosen place is significant to Canadians. Please note the following important information:
