Argyle student wins ‘Great Canadian Video Contest’

June 05, 2017


Congratulations to Joel Woznow (Argyle Secondary School, Grade 12), who was recently selected as one of the winners of the 'Great Canadian Video Contest' for World Environment Day!

Today on June 5th, Canada hosts World Environment Day, and Canadians will lead the world in celebrating with a full program focused on this year's theme, "Connecting People to Nature."

As part of the program, Environment and Climate Change Canada hosted a national competition, the 'Great Canadian Video Contest'. Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, invited Canadians between the ages of 18 – 25 to put together a short, two-minute video to show how they connect with nature, protect the environment, and take action on climate change.

Joel Woznow, Grade 12 student at Argyle Secondary School, submitted his video for the contest through Twitter and recently received the fantastic news that he has been selected as a winner!

Recently, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, announced the two Great Canadian Video Contest winners joining her at the World Environment Day activities; Heather Harris, of Prince Edward Island, and Joel Woznow, of British Columbia.

Both winners have been invited to attend the World Environment Day delegation for events in Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Kingston, Ontario on June 4th and 5th.
