High school exams are fast approaching, and we want to help you do your best! During Teen Exam Cram (January 20 to February 1), we invite teens to study in our branches, receive help preparing for their exams, and relieve some stress by enjoying a few surprises in our branches.

This year, we also want to give you the chance to de-stress after your exam period by winning a City of Ottawa complimentary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Public Swim double pass or a City of Ottawa complimentary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Public Skate double pass.

To participate in this contest, tell us what some of your study tips are. For example:

  • What helps you study?
  • What are your studying techniques?
  • How do you relax and de-stress before exams?

By sharing your tips, you will not only be entered into the contest, but you will also provide peer-to-peer help! We’ll compile all your study tips and post them on our blog on Monday, January 18. Keep an eye out!

You can enter by:

One entry per person. The deadline to enter is Sunday, January 17, 11:59 p.m.
Winners will be drawn randomly from the entries. The draw will be held on Monday, January 18 at 12:00 p.m. The winners will be contacted on the same day, via the same platform they’ve entered the contest. Winners will have the option of picking up their prize at their home branch location.
