Ultimate Dream Job ContestAugust 3, 2012
The Learning Partnership and Scotiabank Group® are delighted to announce the fourth annual Ultimate Dream Job Contest. Running in conjunction with this year’s Take Our Kids to Work™ program, the Ultimate Dream Job Contest not only encourages Grade 9 students to start thinking about future career paths, it also gives them the chance to win great prizes. Schools win too! The five schools with the most entries each win $1,000 to enhance school resources in any way they wish.
The Ultimate Dream Job Contest is open to students across Canada starting in Grade 9 in a publically funded school this fall. They simply submit photos representing their dream jobs, along with a 25-word description. Each week the 10 best photos will be displayed on-line for public voting. The top three win prizes and the first place photo is placed in the Finalists Gallery where, at the end of six weeks, the public will elect a winner. That grand prize winner will be announced on October 29, 2012, and will receive a return flight from their home town to Ottawa, with their parent/guardian, to meet The HonourableAndrew Scheer,Speaker of the House of Commons, on Take Our Kids to Work day, November 7, 2012.
