Councillors Jan Harder and Steve Desroches are launching a special contest for all Barrhaven elementary school residents on Monday (May 27th).
The contest, which originated from an idea submitted by six-year-old Owen, a student at Berrigan Elementary School, will ask students from kindergarten to grade six to submit a photo of an area they think makes Barrhaven more beautiful somehow.
Possible entries could include photos of gardens the student helped plant, areas the student has helped cleaned up, or maybe even their favourite garden location in Barrhaven. The opportunities are endless.
To enter, students should submit their photos by email to Carol.Valpy@Ottawa.ca or Andrea.Ward@Ottawa.ca between Monday May 27th and Friday June 14th along with their name, their parent’s names, address, and phone number (all information will be kept confidential).
All entries will be posted on Pinterest (again no personal information will be posted other than first names) for the community to see and ‘like’.
Each entry submitted with all the necessary information will be eligible for prizes from the Barrhaven Councillors.
