We need you to come up with a marketing plan and collect e-waste in your area. You will manage every detail from the planning and promoting to the execution! We want to see how creative students can get with marketing the event and reaching out to your community and local businesses. How will you implement your ideas to raise awareness and get your networks involved? After you have followed through with your collections, the team at ERA will evaluate your work after the deadline and pick the winner.
Are you eligible?
Must be a full-time/part-time student in Canada. For those participants which are outside our operating areas (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal) there will be adjusted requirements.
Why is ERA holding this competition?
ERA likes to get the community involved in many ways throughout the year. This competition gives students the opportunity to gain experience, build their resume, and if they are motivated enough to win this scholarship, would be a great help financially with schooling.
