Registration has opened for the 2020 Environmental Mind Grind competition for high school students hosted by the Abbotsford Mission Recycling program.
The event will feature high school teams from Abbotsford and Mission secondary schools competing against each other in an academic trivia-based competition on February 26th at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. The questions are focused on environmental awareness, which the students prepare for by reviewing material in the contest study guide.
First prize is $1,500.00 towards an environmental initiative at the winning team’s school. Over the past few years, Mission Senior Secondary has used their combined winnings to install four water bottle refill stations within the school and they also purchased compost collection containers.
The Abbotsford Mission Recycling Program provides recycling services for the District of Mission and City of Abbotsford. They are a part of Archway Commmunity Services and offer an extensive public awareness program, which includes school and community education.
