The world has been devastated by the pandemic, but children are one of the most affected groups. School closures have adversely affected children’s mental health. Children are also the last group approved for vaccination, which makes their infection rate comparable to that of adults aged 18-49. The school competition requires the public to nominate a school that they believe is worthy of winning an air purifier for the entire school.

Laval, Quebec, November 11, 2021 (Global News Agency)-Research has shown that COVID-19 is mainly spread through the air. To prevent the spread of disease, the EPA recommends the use of portable HEPA air purifiers, especially in schools.

The Cloverdale Traditional School in Surrey, British Columbia, was named the winner of the competition and won 20 HEPA air purifiers for their school. They got the most votes from the community to help them win. Cloverdale Traditional School is an elementary school consisting of 300 children. The school is located in an undivided traditional territory shared by the Katzie, Semiahmoo and Kawntlen peoples, and upholds the traditional values ​​of respect, tolerance and kind behavior. The competition ends on September 27, 2021, and the winners will be announced on September 30, 2021.

The 10 runner-ups also received an Airpura air purifier. The following are the top 10 schools selected based on the number of votes received: Millwood Elementary School (Nova Scotia), Wilbur E Lucas Elementary School (Texas), Indian Lake High School (Ohio), Kennedy Elementary School (Dirk Saskatchewan), Southwest Adventist Junior College (Texas), DuPont Middle School (West Virginia), George Greenaway Elementary School (British Columbia), Traditional Middle School (Florida), William J Clinton Elementary School ( Texas), Pleasant Valley Elementary School (Pennsylvania).
