David Suzuki Secondary School is currently in third place in the competition. Staff are encouraged to vote for David Suzuki. Votes can be submitted once a day at www.majestatreesofknowledge.ca, and voting ends May 5.
David Suzuki was one of 10 finalists—the only from Peel Region—vying to win the national MAJESTA Trees of Knowledge Competition. The school that receives the most votes will earn $20,000 for an outdoor classroom.
The proposed outdoor classroom aims to build two classroom spaces. These spaces will be linked by pathways leading through gardens designed to help restore local monarch and pollinator populations. The pathways will be lined by native trees and shrubs, which will eventually provide tasty berries that will be prepared and served by students in the hospitality program.
Winners will be announced online at www.majesta.com on June 10, 2014.
