Registration is now open for the Abbotsford Mission Recycling Program’s Environmental Mind Grind 2018.

The event is taking place on Feb. 24, 2018 at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre in Abbotsford.

It is an academic, trivia-based competition for high school students from Abbotsford and Mission to compete against each other answering questions focused on environmental awareness.

Last year, students from Mission Senior Secondary came in second place and won $500, while first place’s team from Rick Hansen Secondary won $1,500. The prize money is to go towards an environmental initiative at their school.

The event is held each year to encourage young adults to learn about their local environment. For more information about the Environmental Mind Grind, please contact the education coordinator at 604-850-3551 ext. 4, or e-mail to
