PRESS RELEASE

MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 3,  2008-  As part of its ongoing 10th anniversary celebrations, the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) is calling upon its Cycle 3 elementary and Cycle 1 high school students who have a knack for science to participate in the Science Olympics, which will take place on January 21, 2009 (10 a.m. to Noon)  at Laurier MacDonald High School (7355 Viau)  in St. Léonard.

The Science Olympics will have the participating schools test their creativity and scientific knowledge by competing in two specific, science-related challenges. Their efforts will be decided by a panel of 15 judges that are going to be selected from the EMSB’s Adult and Vocational Centres. Each student will receive a certificate of participation, and each winning team will be awarded a plaque for their school. As well, the winners of the challenges will get a special voucher for a pizza lunch for a class of 32 students.

Each school is allowed to enter a maximum of two teams for the Science Olympics, with each team containing no more than six students. Deadline for registration is November 26, 2008.
