North Peace Secondary School is in the market for a new school mascot! After years of faithful service, our Ookapik and Oscar are heading for retirement. Their unbridled support for our teams has made them legends of our High School.

- The name needs to work as a symbol from our Northern Community
- The Mascot and name needs to be a readily identifiable character and must also not overlap other local school mascots.
