Be clean and go green
Winners of the poster contest for The Great Green Transportation Tune-Up display their artwork with event organizer Gisela Ruckert (back). Reese Weir (left), Taylor Hennessey (right) and Shelan Roach (centre) won first, second and third prizes, respectively.
The students, all in either Mme. Lebeau’s or Mme. Cauchon’s class at Ecole Lloyd George, created posters encouraging people to use sustainable forms of transportation, which is the theme of the week-long Tune-Up, taking place from Sept. 26 to Oct. 1.
“The artwork we received was just wonderful” said Ruckert, one of the event organizers.
“We’ll be using some of these posters in our bus ads.” While visiting the school, Ruckert was impressed with the level of knowledge the students displayed.
“They knew all about the causes of climate change and generated a long list of things they can do to help — everything from walking to school to eating locally grown food as much as possible.”
The Great Green Transportation Tune-Up is a week-long event designed to engage the community in re-thinking transportation habits while making it easy and entertaining to try something new.
