Toyota Nurtures Canadian Students
Like many companies today, Toyota-Canada strives to promote community participation in environmental activities and educating young people in regard to the importance of protecting natural habitats.
Reap the rewards from this generous company to schools with their Toyota-Evergreen program.
The Toyota Evergreen Learning Ground Program is available to Canadian Schools. Toyota and its' dealerships have graciously supported further expansion of the Evergreen Program which has many years of experience in changing the look of Canadian school yards.
These landscape changes can take many forms in such ways as planting trees, starting vegetable gardens, building ponds and even towards the creation of murals.
This transforms the traditional asphalt-school-yard into
something beautiful, and the making of it is such a learning
experience at the same time.
The Company has also provided supports which have enabled grants and awards to be handed out annually.
Workshops are held in different regions of the country offering
tools for resources. An interactive website can be accessed.
Toyota-Canada has also teamed with Earth-Day-Canada to create a Toyota-scholarship-program to reward Canadian secondary-school graduates which recognizes their good works for the
environment, volunteer service and proven academic standing.
For students entering their first year of a Post-Secondary
education of their choice, the Earth Day Scholarship program grants $5,000.00 each to fifteen deserving students to aid in paying for tuition, books and other necessary expenses for the initial first year.
The awards scholarships are handed out in 5 geographical areas of Canada, and determined by a panel of leaders representing the community, business, and the environment.
There is criteria to meet as mentioned above, which is determined by the efforts of the students.
There is an extra bonus for one lucky student.
From the fifteen winners of these awards, one national winner is
chosen overall, and this student also receives a notebook
As a parent who knows about school costs, that is one very nice less expense for a student to have to worry about.
This is all so very generous of Toyota, as they do realize the need and especially the importance in nurturing and rewarding the environmental leaders of tomorrow.
