SASKATCHEWANDERER PROGRAM BACK FOR ANOTHER SUMMER

Released on February 3, 2012

The Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport is hiring again for the best summer job ever - the Saskatchewanderer.

This is a student position that launched last year as a marketing pilot project. The job includes travelling around the province, discovering what makes Saskatchewan great, and then blogging about it through writing, photos and video.

"The first year of our Saskatchewanderer program was so successful we had to do it again," Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Bill Hutchinson said. "People from 110 countries and territories viewed more than 176,000 pages on saskatchewanderer.ca. And I am confident they liked what they saw of our wonderful province - they saw our exceptional provincial parks with their beautiful lakes, forests and even sand dunes along with unique cultural and recreational events. They saw that you can surf and zipline and take part in an exciting kite festival in Saskatchewan. They saw that this is truly the best province for visitors to experience."

The contest part of the hiring is changing for 2012. This year, the ministry will again select a shortlist for the public to vote on, but there will only be one round of voting (as opposed to three) and the public will choose which applicants get job interviews. The ministry will then conduct the interviews and ultimately select the 2012 Saskatchewanderer.

"We heard from a number of students last year that they needed to know as soon as possible if they will have a summer job with our ministry," Hutchinson said. "We also heard clearly that producing contest videos during final exams is stressful. We took those comments to heart and have improved the process with this excellent advice in mind."

Students who are interested can apply at www.saskatchewanderer.ca. Submissions will be accepted from Feb. 10 to Feb. 17 at noon.

The ministry is pleased to announce the Saskatchewanderer sponsors have signed on for another summer of wandering. Bennett Dunlop Ford will once again provide a vehicle for the Saskatchewanderer, while CAA Saskatchewan will help keep the student safe on the road with a CAA membership and gas cards.
