“We are pleased to relaunch this fun contest for kids as part of the KAST Glows program,” says KAST Executive Director, Cam Whitehead. “It’s a great way for students to engage and to get creative about solving real problems in their communities. Kids think about problems in unique ways, which can sometimes be exactly what’s needed to make progress.”
KAST and program sponsor FortisBC will judge submissions by grade level for creativity, ingenuity and originality. Participants can win an educational kit for their class (KEVA kit or Climate Action kit) and one lucky individual will win the grand prize of a Lenovo Notebook.
“We’re looking forward to seeing all the submissions from the creative kids in this community,” said Blair Weston, community and indigenous relations manager, FortisBC. “We’re expecting to see some very inspiring work. Our thanks to KAST for their ongoing work coordinating opportunities like this.”
