(L-R); Wayne Hugli , (Chair of VETAC) and his wife Linda, congratulate Vicky McGuire, Principal of St. David Catholic School and Jennifer Brohart, the school’s Catholic School Council Chair on winning the City of Greater Sudbury’s Ugliest Schoolyard Contest.

June 6, 2006 - St. David Catholic School is the winner of this year's annual 'Ugliest Schoolyard Contest'. The innovative contest reinforces and supports local efforts to provide shade for children in school yards through planting trees and shrubs, thereby reducing the strength of the sun's rays.

As part of the winning package for the Ugliest Schoolyard, St. David will receive trees and shrubs, courtesy of Canadian Tire, Saturn of Sudbury will provide a reading corner containing large trees, sod and benches with Hollandia Landscaping and INCO donating top soil for the project. ALLMAC Tree Service will plant the trees, sod and shrubbery with the help of the students, staff and parents at St. David Catholic School.

The St. David entry was selected from fifteen schools that participated in the contest with the criteria consisting of submission of letters from the students, photos from staff, and a walkabout of the school by the panel of judges as to why their school should win the 'Ugliest Schoolyard Contest'.
