September 23, 2022 – RDÉE PEI: Several community, co-op and economic development partners have joined forces again this year to host a drawing contest for children in grades K-6. The goal is to encourage children to learn more about co-ops and businesses in their area – and to give them a chance to win great cash or merchandise prizes.
Held on the occasion Co-op and Small Business Week (Oct. 16-22), the contest simply invites youth to draw a picture of a local co-op or business on an entry form and submit it to their teacher at Évangéline School or in a designated box at the Wellington Co-op.
The contest begins Oct. 1. Participants can pick up an entry form at Évangéline School or the Wellington Co-op, or they can download the form from https://bit.ly/3QWpnA9. Participants will then have until Sunday, Oct. 16, to submit their drawings.
Their creations will be displayed on the walls of the Co-op and, if necessary, in the hallways of Place du Village mini-mall for the community to enjoy. On Oct. 21, draws will be held to determine the winners of the numerous prizes that are available, including those of greater value provided by Wellington Co-op and MacDonald Insurance & Investments (The Co-operators).
