Annual Agricultural Poster Contest
Every spring, Strathcona County’s Agricultural Service Board (ASB) invites kids in elementary schools (grade 3, 4, and 5) in Strathcona County and Fort Saskatchewan to participate in their annual school poster contest. The contest encourages children to think about the importance of agriculture and how it links to them, whether they live on a farm, acreage or in town. Children have an opportunity to win prizes as well as express their ideas about the agriculture community.
Each year in early may Strathcona County presents all grade one students with a seedling to help celebrate arbor day. Come help instill the importance of trees and caring for our environment at an early age!
School's Mayor Walk/Run
Calling all schools or classroom that are interested in participating in a walk/run as a healthy initiative and to gain team spirit. This great event happens the beginning of May.
Your school can pick a date, in the last 2 weeks in April, to pick up garbage and we will supply the waste bags to help you clean up your school and the surrounding community!
