Contest Details: 

NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY. The Recycle Right with Milk “Milk Spirit Week” contest (the “CONTEST”) is sponsored by Dairy Farmers of Canada (the “Sponsor”). The Contest begins at 12:00:00 AM Central Daylight Time (“CST”) on February 27, 2024 and ends at 11:59:59 AM CST on March 12, 2024 (the “Contest Period”). There is a limit of one entry per school.  

The Contest is for schools registered for Recycle Right with Milk 2023-24 (the “WINNER”). There are six (6) prizes to be won, one (1) prize per Winner, either $200 or $500 (the “Prize”). There are two (2) Prize categories: five (5) Celebrate with Milk Day Prizes of $200 each towards milk (or another dairy product of choice) and one (1) School Wide Milk Day Prize of $500 towards milk for all students in the school.  The Prize is intended to cover some or all of the milk (dairy product) cost, depending on the school’s student population. Any costs incurred exceeding the Prize amount are the responsibility of the Winner. The Sponsor is not responsible for any incurred costs resulting from Milk Spirit Week. 

The school is responsible for planning and executing all Milk Spirit Week activities/events, including the milk kick-off or wind-up. The Prize must be accepted as awarded without substitution and cannot be transferred or assigned (except as may be specifically permitted by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion). 

The Winners will be drawn at random. The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received for each of the Prize categories during the contest period. The probability of winning the Prize will depend on the total number of eligible entries received for each category. The Winners will be selected and notified by email on March 13, 2024.  

Only participants in the province of Manitoba shall be considered in this promotional contest. 

By participating in this Contest, entrants acknowledge and agree that the Prize is subject to the Winner accepting the Prize by completing the properly executed Release Form: indicating two (2) planned Milk Spirit Week activities, describing in three hundred words or less how milk will be included in the spirit week kick-off or wind-up, providing the correct answer to the skill testing question, and providing information for the purpose of electronic fund transfer (EFT) to the school. The Prize is subject to Sponsor approval of planned Milk Spirit Week activities and kick-off or wind-up. Approval of the activity(ies) and kick-off or wind-up are in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. If the school does not accept the Prize, receive Sponsor approval on planned activities/events, and provide school EFT information prior to March 29, 2024, the Sponsor has the right to revoke the prize. The Sponsor is not responsible for any inconvenience, loss, or damages resulting from a revoked Prize. 

If the Winner has not accepted the Prize and communicated details of its use by March 29, 2024, the Prize will be left to the discretion of the Sponsor. The Sponsor reserves the right to re-draw a Winner from the list of eligible entries and award the Prize as it sees fit.

Resource Library

By participating in this program students are learning how to recycle right, while having the opportunity to drink milk. Below are some of the resources available to help your school share what the program is and how it works.

Recycling Poster

The program poster describes the 6 steps to recycle beverage containers and reduce contamination of recyclable materials. These posters are a visual cue for students, staff, and visitors to recycle right everyday. Hang these posters in classrooms, hallways, custodian closet/sink room doors, and anywhere else students will be reminded how to recycle right at meal times.

Measure Meter Poster

Tracking twice a year is optional, but highly recommended as a way to encourage your school community’s recycling efforts. During periods of tracking, use this poster to display your results. Use the results with the Impact Calculator.

Intro Letter to Families – Customizable

Introduce your school’s milk program and Recycle Right with Milk to families. This customizable pdf provides important program information and allows for school customization. Fill in your school specific details including cost of milk, how to purchase milk, and who to contact with questions.

MILK TICKETS

Milk tickets are an easy way for students to redeem milk, while removing the need to exchange money on a daily basis. Milk tickets can be purchased by families in advance. Using a pre-payment system means parents don’t have to remember to send money to school every day and it also cuts down on the time your school spends administering the program.

When tickets are for sale and for what price is a school based decision. Remind parents/guardians regularly that milk tickets are available for purchase. Use the complimentary templates below or create your school’s own tickets!
