It’s almost that time of year again and the countdown is on until the kids go back to school. But before you decide on what lunch boxes, pencil cases, folders, and essential tech your son or daughter need for the year ahead, a great backpack ranks near the top of every parent’s back-to-school wish list. Not only do you want a bag that’s roomy enough and fits comfortably, you want one that’ll stand up to the daily rough-and-tumble of life on the playground. High Sierra offers a line of premium backpacks that both students and parents will love, and Best Buy Canada have 10 of them to give away. This contest is your kid’s opportunity to gear up, and just in time to get serious about study again.

Varying styles of backpacks for all ages

No matter what grade they’re getting ready for, going back to school after vacation can fill a young person with dread. So ease the transition from summer to September with an awesome backpack. Whether you have a little one just starting out with the ABCs and 123s, or a young adult getting serious about the works of Shakespeare and advanced trigonometry, the chances are, High Sierra have the right bag for him or her. You’ll find a huge range of styles of High Sierra backpacks available online at Best Buy.

High Sierra backpacks for weekday routines and weekend adventures

Whether on the road to school or the path to adventure, every child, tween, and teen needs a backpack they can count on, and High Sierra backpacks are designed for all of life’s journeys. Ideal for the jam-packed Monday to Friday schedule, each bag is constructed with water-repellent fabric for those rainy day commutes, and a padded back panel and thick, cushy shoulder straps so heavy homework won’t be such a drag. For the most part, these backpacks are equipped for the digital age too, with dedicated compartments for laptops and tablets.

So, as we’ve established, your child is going places academically, but the weekend is for adventure. Well, that’s the beauty of these rugged and versatile bags; they’re designed to keep students equipped for the classroom, but also prepared for the trails, slopes, and campsites. So when school’s out, and your daughter or son is ready to close their laptop and voyage to where there’s no Wi-Fi, they’ll have their water bottle, headphones, sweater, and everything else they need stashed securely in their trusty High Sierra backpack.


Entering this contest is really easy but you can only enter once. Visit, check out some of our categories, and in a comment below this article, tell us which item you or your child would most frequently want to take inside one of these backpacks and why. Maybe they’re looking at a new laptop for schoolwork this year, or maybe a tablet. Maybe there’s a water bottle that you never leave home without. There’s so many options here, but you are only required to tell us about one.


At the end of this contest we will draw ten entries from all of the eligible entries submitted, and each winner will receive one of the ten backpacks. Each bag is unique. Some are bright and colourful while others are more discreet and understated. Some are perfect for high school while some are more suited to kindergarten.

This contest will run from August 10th until August 27th

Remember you can only enter once, but we regularly run many contests at Best Buy so keep returning to the blog and enter them all to increase your chances of winning something from Best Buy this year. Share this contest and let everyone know about it. If you don’t win a backpack, maybe a family friend can win one for you!

Good luck.
