Revenu Québec’s School Program Contest Brings Smiles to Winners
In June, Revenu Québec representatives presented cash prizes of $200 to each member of the three winning teams in the Taxes in Québec: Why We Pay Them and How They Are Used contest. The teacher supervising each winning team received a cash prize of $150.
Every year, Revenu Québec publishes and distributes educational material for Grade 5 and 6 elementary school students throughout Québec. The material consists of a presentation and activity guide for teachers, a workbook for students, and a contest entry form.
To enter the contest, students must write a short, clear text on the topic “A friend asks you what taxes are used for. What do you tell your friend?” Winning entries are selected at random.
Danielle Lepage, director of information management, along with Josée Côté and Valérie Bernier, who are in charge of the school program at Revenu Québec, were proud to hand out prizes to the members of the winning team and their teacher. They visited École Saint-Cœur-de-Marie in Rivière-à-Pierre on June 14.
On June 20, Claude Girard, strategic coordinator for the Employeur de choix program, visited École Saint-Michel in Québec City to present prizes to the members of the winning team and their teacher.
On June 20, École Père-Vimont in Laval was visited by France Richard, regional director of client services for individuals in northern and western Québec, who awarded prizes to the members of the winning team and their teacher.
Congratulations to the winners!
