Competition. With your weekly edition of the Chronicle at the ready, get set for collecting!
Over the coming weeks, one golden token will be hidden in each copy of your local newspaper, waiting to be discovered.
Simply pick up a copy of the Chronicle, scour the pages for the token of the week, carefully cut out the golden token and add to your school’s tally.
The school with the most tokens, relative to the number of enrolled students, will win $1000 for its parents and friends or school association. As an added bonus, one class will win an end of term class party valued at $100.
“Everyone can be involved!” says Leanne Everett, advertising and client relations manager at the Chronicle.
“Encourage your family members – grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins – friends and neighbours, to collect a token each week. The more you collect, the closer you are to winning the grand prize.”
Open to Edith Creek, Forest, Smithton, Stanley and Redpa primary schools, Smithton High School, St Peter Chanel Catholic School and Circular Head Christian School, community members can collect for more than one school.
Simply take your tokens to the school office of your choice or visit the Chronicle crew at 56 Goldie Street, Smithton to add to your chosen school’s tally.
The winning school will be free to spend the prize money on a project of their choice: new books, play equipment or technology perhaps?
The competition will run for seven weeks with the winning school and class announced in the Thursday July 5 edition.
“The best part of the competition is it is so easy to be a part of,” says Leanne, of supporting your local paper.
“What better way to give back to the community than to our hardworking school associations.”
