School District 27 is hosting a contest to name the new combined secondary school in Williams Lake.
The prize will be having the recognition and honour of having chosen the new name for the school, says Superintendent of Schools Mark Thiessen in announcing the contest.
He says all members of the community are encouraged to participate in naming the new school that will combine Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools to operate as one school on two campuses.
He says things to consider in choosing a name may include the histories of the two secondary schools; First Nations culture; as well as names of past and present prominent people in the community.
Submissions should include a rationale for each name submitted.
Names submitted will be posted on the school district website at www.sd27.bc.ca
Name submissions will be accepted until 4 p.m. April 19.
After April 19, the school district will announce the next step in the process.
Submissions can be dropped off or mailed to Shannon Augustine at the School District 27 office at 350 Second Ave. N.
