Calling All Children & Youth: We Need to Hear Your Voices!!!

Dear Parents / Guardians, Children & Youth…

We need your help!

Last year the Federal Government launched the “Smart Cities Challenge”, a national competition that encourages communities to come up with innovative technology solutions to their most pressing challenge. The top prize is $50 million!!!

Waterloo Region entered the contest with a focus on healthy children and youth. We want to make our community THE BEST in Canada for kids.

And we were chosen one of just five Canadian communities to compete for the award!

To help us win the $50 million, we are asking you (should you choose to participate) to assist your child(ren) in signing a special petition urging the competition judges to recognize the participation and support we have from local young people to win the smart cities challenge.

The petition is open to ALL children and youth up to age 18 and is available for your child(ren) to sign at: https://bit.ly/2Hnd0yD

Let’s hear all those #WCDSBAwesome Waterloo Catholic District School Board voices!!!
