For the second time, in 2017, Fondation Jasmin Roy will award one Quebec school the Émilie Bierre prize for the most positive school in the world! This prize will be awarded to the elementary or secondary school that best demonstrates the creation of positive and caring environments.

Violence and bullying are relationship problems that need to be addressed with relationship-based responses, through positive educational interventions that focus on the development of pro-social skills. Supporting the development of a positive school climate involves choosing interventions that will teach young people how to live together better.

Using the attached form, demonstrate to the Fondation jury the actions that will be taken throughout 2017-2018 to encourage healthy emotional and relational habits.

To help jury members decide the winner, we invite you to send us photos, videos or any other relevant documents that will demonstrate your approach and the work that was accomplished.

This award will be accompanied by a $2,500 cash prize to recognize the exemplary work done by your school’s staff and students in their efforts and actions to become the most positive school.

The deadline to submit applications is October 31, 2017.
