Search on for enviromentally responsible schools

Staples Canada is on the hunt for environmentally responsible elementary and secondary schools.

The company is partnering with Earth Day Canada to launch the 2013 Recycle for Education contest, in which schools have the chance to win one of 10 $25,000 computer lab makeovers.

Schools must submit a principal-approved, 500-word essay on how their school has become environmentally responsible by Friday (Feb. 22). Winners will be announced in early April.

Dover Bay Secondary School won a new computer lab through the nationwide contest in 2011.
