KIDS CAN contest gives youth a chance to show off their clean-up effort
The City of Toronto, in conjunction with TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, is holding a photo/video contest for students called KIDS CAN as part of the City's Clean Toronto Together program.

The contest encourages students to participate in a clean-up of their community or school and then illustrate their experience through photo or video submissions.

"This contest is a wonderful opportunity for students to show how creative they are and how much fun it can be when they get together and help cleanup in their community," said Mayor Rob Ford.

"We are very excited to support this new educational initiative to help build environmental awareness in the next generation," said Mary Desjardins, Executive Director, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. "This program will help young people to understand that they can make a big difference to the environment and to their community."

Submissions for the contest will be accepted until April 30. Winners will receive a grand prize of $3,000 from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and a Pizza Pizza party for their entire school.
