A big thank you to all our participating schools, all of which were successful in completing the Trash Can Jam Challenge!:

  • Donwood Elementary
  • Ecole Julie Riel
  • Frontenac School
  • Lavallee School
  • Robert Smith School
  • Whyte Ridge Elementary

And a big congratulations to Robert Smith School! They were randomly selected from all participating schools and have won a free field trip for one class.

Schools can be a significant source of waste production, as the average student produces up to 30 kilograms of waste per year. Congratulations to these schools for taking up the challenge this past winter and tackling their waste production head on!

While this is a fun way for classrooms reduce waste while on their field trip to FortWhyte, it would be even better if we could all cut down on the amount of trash we create each and every day. Let's all take the Trash Can Jam Challenge, shall we?
