NBCC invites NB students to explore career futures in province-wide competition

From April 24 – June 2, New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) will sponsor a provincial competition with ChatterHigh to determine New Brunswick’s Most Informed High School. ChatterHigh is an online educational game that engages students, teachers and parents in labour market information and career planning.

“Students have access to so much information about careers and postsecondary education today but it can seem overwhelming when you’re a high school student trying to make choices about your future,” said Shawn Ethier, NBCC’s Provincial Recruitment Coordinator. “The ChatterHigh platform helps students navigate important information about career prospects, labour market information and postsecondary education options in a fun and accessible way.”

Each day, participants research and answer questions provided by post-secondary education institutions that relate to various careers. To find the answers, students will have to research online information on labour market, career planning and postsecondary education programs. Each correct answer will earn their school one point.

NBCC has provided $4,000 for the winning schools. Schools are divided into four groups based on student population. The top three schools will earn prize money which can be used towards school-community projects.
