Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Explorica, a company creating educational tours that connect students to new cultures, languages and people through educational travel, today announced the winner of its first ever Vimy Ridge $5,000 School Grant Giveaway to David McLean.
Through booking one of Explorica’s upcoming 95th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge Commemorative Tours by the early sign up date, David submitted the winning entry to this exclusive promotion designed to benefit schools that share Explorica’s mission of honouring those who fought at this historic battle.
On Explorica’s 95th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge Commemorative Tours, students will experience the life of a Canadian soldier abroad in World War I by participating in commemorative events held by the Veterans Affairs Canada, then explore all the cultural activities that the major cities surrounding this important battle have to offer.
In order to provide more high school students the opportunity to be a part of this once-in -a-lifetime educational experience, David plans to use the $5,000 toward student scholarships. “There were young men from our area who fought and died for our country at the battle sites we will visit,” David says. “I teach about the wars and I know there’s no better way to learn about history than to experience where it happened.”
Explorica’s exclusive 95th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge Commemorative Tours will run throughout the month of April, 2012, and are still accepting new groups. For more information on these tours and other associated benefits, please visit explorica.ca/warhistory or call 1.888.566.6318 today.
