Ottawa’s Favourite Crossing Guard Contest

posted Mar 28, 2017, 8:00 AM by Kim Jimmo

My name is Kelly Banks and I am the Program Manager for the Adult Crossing Guard program in the City of Ottawa.  I am contacting you today to tell you about an exciting contest happening this Spring and the opportunity for your school to win a $300 Canadian Tire gift certificate.  As I am sure you can appreciate, Adult Crossing Guards have a very important (and sometimes stressful) job.  Students and parents depend on their Crossing Guard to help them cross the road safely all year long, in all kinds of weather and traffic.

To that end, we would like to give students, parents, school faculty and the community in general the opportunity to recognize the Adult Crossing Guards efforts.  The Ottawa’s Favourite Crossing Guard contest will run from March 27th through April 30th.  The winner receives a $500 cash prize and is awarded the Marie Armstrong Crossing Guard award.
