That’s one of the reasons our annual Design an Ad special supplement continues to be popular in Burnaby. The Burnaby NOW, local businesses and organizations, and the Burnaby school district, team up and ask city students to design newspaper ads for the special section. Every year, the students produce insightful, creative, thoughtful – and often humorous – advertisements that highlight the strengths of their subjects and often carry compelling messages. The businesses and groups get to choose which students’ advertisement they want to run in the section and our photographer visits the students. The ads and photos of students are put together by our team at the Burnaby NOW and another Design an Ad section is complete. I would like to thank all of the students, teachers and participating advertisers who continue to make this annual project a real success!

Discover your Future In Burnaby Schools, we’re helping students to discover their future and empowering them for the opportunities of today and tomorrow. When I was growing up, the big question was “What do you want to be?” Nowadays, odds are most people will “be” more than one thing, having multiple careers or jobs over their adult lives – either because something has changed for them or something has changed around them. Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher who lived some 2500 years ago, said “there is nothing permanent except change.” Education in our schools focuses on equipping students with the skills they need in a changing world, such as communication, critical thinking, resiliency, and social skills – all of which will serve them well, no matter what the future brings. Our students are also given the chance to explore a career and see if it sparks interest or joy. This competition for Design an Ad is one example of that: a chance to try marketing and advertising. At the high school level, there are dozens of additional
