On Saturday, February 24th, students and teachers from Rick Hansen Secondary and Mission Senior Secondary braved the winter weather conditions to compete in Abbotsford Mission Recycling Program’s fifth annual Environmental Mind Grind competition at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

Mission Senior Secondary’s two Leadership teams won first and third place and were awarded a combined total of $1,750.00 and Rick Hansen Secondary’s “Hurrigreens” came in second, winning $500.00. The prize money is to go towards an environmental initiative within their schools.

This year, the prize money was generously sponsored by FortisBC.

The games were hosted by Star98.3/Country107.1‘s Samantha Gill; the radio stations also offered substantial advertising of the event prior to game day. We would like to thank Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, Greenlid, and RBC for their generous contributions as well as the many others that supported this event.
