They Won: Greenest School

by Andrea Bossenmeyer

Remember South Shore Charter in MA? They were the clever little reporters that were competing with other schools around the nation for the Greenest School Competition. A special thanks to any of our blog followers for voting for them. Good news! They won.
They won a hybrid school bus from IC Bus,
as well as a green audit and approximately $20,000 to use for green improvements. The students themselves will also share a $3,000 scholarship.

Watch it again

"Today's students are making environmental responsibility even more of a priority over previous generations," said John McKinney, President of IC Bus. "The commitment to going green was evident in this year's entries. It was clear that South Shore Charter Public School used its creativity to get its message across -- and America made a great choice in selecting the school as the winner."

Students are encouraged to learn more about other ways to make their schools greener by watching the winning video and checking out other tips online at www.AmericasGreenestSchool.com.
