The NEXTnetwork is holding a PEI high school student campaign and sound off competition for the month of April. The goal of NEXTnetwork is to help young Islanders choose their best path after high school. It is an online community that provides PEI high school students and families with resources and information on career and education options available after high school. Go to NEXTnetwork.ca to login and become a member. You will be asked weekly questions throughout the month of April which you will answer online. The weekly questions will be career and post secondary based, and will be structured to get students thinking about your future. Students that participate will have a chance to win individual weekly prizes that include Cineplex gift cards, Target gift cards and PEI Burger Love gift cards. For the grand prize, the high school with the largest percentage of student engagement will win their school a MuchMusic Dance Party. The winning school will be determined by the highest percentage of student body that signs up and continually answers the weekly campaign questions. The contest is set up so that any PEI high school could win this dance party grand prize – regardless of the school’s size. The winning school will be announced the end of April and the dance party could be held in May. See the posters around the school for more details.
