Eight schools in Newfoundland and Labrador are amongst 100 finalists for Staples Canada’s Superpower Your School Contest and could win $25,000 in new technology.

Now in its seventh consecutive year, the contest, which recognizes elementary and secondary schools that are helping the environment by implementing innovative eco-programs, is held in collaboration with Earth Day Canada.
This year, there were more than 700 entries from schools across the country.
The finalists now advance to a second round of judging where 10 schools from five different regions will be selected to receive $25,000 each towards the purchase of new technology from Staples Canada.
Winning schools will be announced April 22.
