About Boost your Power Smarts

This October, spark excitement in your class and compete for awesome prizes by taking part in our Boost your Power Smarts quiz competition. 

We're challenging grade 4 to 7 classrooms across the province to test their power smarts with a weekly electricity-themed quiz.

Past grand prize winners

2018 winner: "Blakey's Lightning Minds" from Cayoosh Elementary in Lillooet 

2019 winner: "Pop Quiz Panthers" from Ecole Poirier Elementary in Sooke

Now's your team's chance to claim the top spot and win the grand prize this fall.

Boost your Power Smarts starts on October 4. Every Tuesday, a new quiz will be available at 8:00am PST and your class has until Thursday 3:00pm PST of that week to complete it. 

All you need for your “team” to take part is an internet connection, a screen, and a Power Smart for Schools account. Each quiz has 10 multiple-choice questions and every quiz your class completes is a new chance to win some awesome prizes.

To help your class prep for the quizzes, we’ve set you up with curriculum-connected teaching resources that will only take your class approximately 30 minutes to complete.  Your students will explore how electricity is made, the importance of conserving and protecting water and energy, and what actions we all need to take.

 By using fun games, group work, worksheets and quizzes, Boost your Power Smarts is your tool to inspire energy education.

The class with the highest overall score at the end is eligible to win a visit to their school from BC Hydro, a $200 pizza party and a set of fun educational resources. A random draw will be held if there's a tie.

Weekly prize draw
