Media Advisory - Shazaam! continues to connect comic books and creative kids
Grade seven and eight students from Second Street Junior Middle School will release the second Shazaam! comic book and CD of comic book cover designs this week. Copies of the comic book and cover designs will be on display at the launch.

Date: Wednesday, June 11
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Second Street Junior Middle School, 71 Second St.

This is the second phase of the pilot program that began in 2006. Every year Shazaam! will grow to expand into high schools, giving students a unique opportunity to explore career choices in art and graphic design at the post secondary level. This project in the Lakeshore neighbourhood (south Etobicoke) is a partnership of the City of Toronto, Lakeshore Arts, Lakeshore Community Partnership, Humber College and Toronto District School Board with the support of the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Culture through the Ontario Arts Foundation.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
