Outdoor ice hockey is a great way to make the most of the colder weather. But before you head outside, we answer common winter safety questions to help keep you safe.

Do you know the answers to B.C. students' questions?

There are no silly questions – just a lot of silly reasons for not asking them. The good news is that, unlike adults, kids haven't allowed their curiosity to take a backseat to the fear of embarrassment.

We've collected some of the more intriguing questions posed by students at Power Smart For Schools events across the province in 2022, with a focus on winter.

Most are about electricity, but a few extend beyond. Complete the quiz by January 31, 2022 for a chance to win one of four emergency kits and portable chargers. Contest rules [PDF, 190 KB]  Want more chances to win? Check us out on Instagram and Facebook. Contest rules [PDF, 126 KB]
