Golden Wheel competition coming

Campbell River classrooms will be participating in this competition by biking, walking, rollerblading, carpooling or taking transit

The second annual Golden Wheel competition is back.

Campbell River classrooms all over will be participating in this competition by biking, walking, rollerblading, carpooling or taking transit to school during Bike To Work Week May 28 to June 3.

It’s easy to participate in the Golden Wheel Challenge. Teachers just have to do e-mail Meghan Lawley at meghan.lawley@campbellriver.ca to let her know you want to participate in. During Bike To Work Week, track the number of kids in your class who bike, walk, rollerblade or use alternative forms of transportation to get to school. Then, submit class results at the end of Bike To Work Week to be entered to win prizes.

The elementary school with the greatest green house gas savings will win a pool party at Centennial Pool, and the middle or high school with the greatest green house gas savings will win $200 towards a “green” project at your school. The teacher of the class with the greatest green house gas savings will win $100 towards their professional development bank.
