South Canoe Elementary Wins $30,000 In BCAA Contest


Salmon Arm's South Canoe Elementary School is $30,000 richer.

They won 4th place in the BCAA Play Here Campaign.

Principal Isabelle Gervais says it's not the top prize, but it's still a win "It's pretty exciting to even get $30,000, and that'll get us a pretty nice kitchen, so we're pretty excited."

Those funds will go towards a new kitchen for the school, with Gervais providing details "Cabinets, upper cabinets, proper electrical that we need, we would like a commercial dishwasher, and an island so the kids can work at their level and help us cook."

It's all thanks to online votes over the past few weeks.

Gervais says that planning for how exactly to manage that money will come in September.
