Canada's Coolest Trip

Canada’s Coolest School Trip – contest of the My Parks Pass program
For the third year, the My Parks Pass program has launched Canada’s Coolest School Trip. Last year, a grade 8 class from Saskatchewan won a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site and Cape Breton Highlands National Park, in Nova Scotia. With the support of Air Canada, this year’s winning class will visit Parks Canada's special places on the coast of British Columbia. This four-day trip includes visits to Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, and Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse national historic sites. The class will embark on ocean and wildlife tours, experience what it was like to be a soldier in WWI and WWII, have a one-of-a-kind after-dark tour of the Fisgard Lighthouse, get a chance to sleep in Parks Canada’s new oTENTiks, and much more.
To enter the contest, the class must select a Parks Canada place and create a video that tells the story of its importance to Canadians, using the theme of Canada's Coolest Stories: where nature and history meet. The contest is now open and we would like to highlight the following dates:
Entry: Classes can enter from October 16, 2013 to February 24, 2014.
Public Voting: The public can vote for their favourite videos once a day from March 3-24, 2014. Announcement of Winners: A jury will judge the 10 entries that receive the most votes, to determine the grand prize winners (trip to British Columbia valued at $50,000) as well as three runner-up winners (field trip valued at $750). The jury will also select five honourable mentions (prize package valued at $600) among all entries. Winners will be announced the first week of April.
Trip: The grand prize winners will travel to British Columbia from June 2-6, 2014.

The My Parks Pass program is a partnership between Parks Canada, Canadian Geographic Education, Historica Canada, Nature Canada and new this year Canadian Wildlife Federation. Together, we are working hard to connect young Canadians to their natural and historical treasures.
Our respective organizations work hard to connect young people to their natural and historical heritage, and I'm asking for your support today to help us spread the word so that grade 8/secondary 2 classes benefit from this great opportunity. I invite you to use or adapt the content above and send it to your partners, networks, members, and professional and personal contacts. If appropriate, you may also wish to post on your own website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. And please don't limit this message to teacher networks. Everyone knows a student or teacher in grade 8/secondary 2, so the more people who know the better! Feel free to use or adapt the following tweet:
