The Super Recyclers Grants
Two grants to win!
Since the launch of the Super Recyclers, we have awarded a grant to a school and a daycare at the end of each school year to promote their project so that the donation can have an impact on the school community. To date, we have awarded $6,000 in scholarships and funded more than $140,000 worth of projects.
Winners of the 2018-19 Grants
In June 2019, The Super Recyclers, accompanied by the Foundation, drew the $1,000 Grant as well as the two participation grants.
A $1,000 grant was awarded by the HUMAGO Foundation to École de la Renaissance for a collective school project, a group initiative.
To reduce waste at École de la Renaissance, a Green Committee was created for the 2018-19 school year to raise young people’s awareness of the environment and encourage them to take small ecological measures. The amount will be used to purchase a dishwasher to avoid the use of plastic in the cafeteria at lunchtime. The school encourages environmentally friendly lunch boxes and plans zero waste days.

École de la Source in Shawinigan and Garderie éducative Mascouche are the happy winners of the participation grants.
One scholarship was awarded to a participating school and daycare at the end of the 2019 school year as a participation prize. The winning facilities each doubled the amount they had collected in 2018-19. The draw for the grants was broadcast live on Facebook at the end of the 2019 school year, on June 22nd.
