Contest Details

Schools across Saskatchewan do an amazing job recycling beverage containers, helping return 85% of the beverage containers sold in the province! You guys truly are heroes!

That's why we want to hear your story, in true Superhero fashion: a Comic Book!! That's right, we want you to make your very own comic book, tracking your journey from the beginning of the year all the way through to the end of the year where you officially gain SARCAN School Superhero status!

Grab your fillable comic book template below. Use the guide to help you gather information throughout the year, but get creative! Draw pictures, take pictures, or use a combination of both to fill in the blank spots. Fill in the text boxes with all of the details from your recycling year. Have fun, get creative, and tell us what makes you and your school's recycling team SARCAN School Superheroes!! It could make you $1000 richer!!

Stories will be judged by a set of criteria including how creative, interesting and impactful they are, and you have until May 31, 2021 to submit yours! So, while your story begins and your recycling program gets underway this year, be sure to collect all the information and photos that will help bring the story of your search to life!

The template below is optimized for Adobe Reader (there is a free version for Mac and Windows if you don't have it). The image boxes are clickable and allow you to choose the image to place. The rest are fillable text boxes you can use to tell us your story (the fonts used are 'CCBiffBamBoom' and 'Blambot', but feel free to use your own!). The guide contains prompts that let you know what type of things we are looking for, but if you have better tales to tell, please do! If you have any issues with filling it in, email

Please read our Contest Criteria and Guidelines and Contest Rules & Regulations.

Good luck!
