The second annual Golden Wheel competition is back.
Classrooms all over Campbell River 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, all you have to do is email Meghan Lawley at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you want to participate in the challenge (or toget more information). 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 your class results at the end of Bike To Work Week to be entered to win great prizes.
The Golden Wheel competition is funded by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and the community Bike To Work Week committee. 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 school “green” project. The teacher of the class with the greatest green house gas savings will win $100 towards their professional development bank.
