K-12 Students, we want to learn from you!

New Brunswick is a province of natural beauty, unique attractions, spectacular adventures and tantalizing delicacies, attracting tourists from all over the world to experience our many wonders.

Our Hospitality and Tourism industry employs approximately 30,000 people, who often create both first and lasting impressions for our visitors. We want to know how those operators and tourism destinations are acting on and promoting sustainability.

You can help by participating in our Sustainability in Tourism Contest!

Here’s how it works

In a project medium of your choice (see full list below), introduce us to an operator or tourist destination in your community and explore how they, (1) support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and (2) help New Brunswick remain a thriving destination.

Your project must explore 15 questions, 10 of which must be aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and 5 of which can be of your choice.

Most important of all: use your creativity and imagination – and have fun!

A $300 prize will be awarded to the winner in each of three categories: (1) Grades K-5; (2) Grades 6-8; (3) Grades 9-12.
