King County wants to honor the very best students, teachers, staff, school volunteers, programs and even entire schools that are contributing to student environmental education and environmental protection, through the County’s Earth Heroes at School awards program.
Nominations for the 2014 Earth Heroes at School are due March 10, and winners will be honored at an event this spring. Earth Heroes can be nominated by colleagues, classmates and the public. Self-nominations are also encouraged. Nomination forms are available by calling Donna Miscolta, 206-477-5282, firstname.lastname@example.org, and online.
Recycling, restoring habitat, composting lunchroom waste and growing pesticide-free gardens are among the many types of award-winning projects carried out by students, teachers and staff in King County schools.
By acknowledging these school community environmental leaders through the Earth Heroes at School Program, King County hopes to inspire others to adopt similar actions to protect the environment.
The program is offered through the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks.
