Whiz Quiz Contest

Hydro Ottawa offers an exciting contest for students in Kindergarten through to grade 8. It tests their knowledge of electricity and safety!

Are you a whiz when it comes to electricity? Does winning a tablet spark your interest? We challenge YOU to take the Whiz Quiz – after all, knowledge is power!

The Contest

The contest runs three times per school year:

  • Cycle 1: January 1 – March 31
  • Cycle 2: April 1 – June 16
  • Cycle 3: September 10 – November 30

What do I have to do?

It’s simple. All you need to do is take our Whiz Quiz! The Whiz Quiz entries will be evaluated at the end of each cycle and one lucky student will be awarded a tablet!

Contest rules:

  • Students must attend schools within Hydro Ottawa’s service territory
  • Only students in Kindergarten through to grade 8 are eligible for the contest.
  • Adult (18+) assistance is required to complete the quiz and for the student to be eligible for the prize.
