First Place Winners in the 

Grades of Green - Trash-Free Lunch Challenge

 

Grades of Green is proud to announce the grand prize winners of the 6th annual Trash Free Lunch Challenge! After a panel of environmental experts visited the top three middle schools and the top three elementary schools, the winners were selected. Winning schools were chosen based on how well the Grades of Green team inspired and educated their campus community about the importance of reducing waste, how much waste the school is diverting from landfills, and how the program will be sustained and expanded upon in the future.

Selecting the winners was no easy task. And the winners are...

In the middle school category, Lindbergh STEM Academy in Long Beach! Lindbergh launched a comprehensive waste reduction program, including donating uneaten food to local shelters daily and composting fruit and vegetable scraps on campus. The Grades of Green Team students meet weekly, and caring for the environment is explored through science projects, art, and more.  The school even reached out to their local city council members to involve them in the program. Congratulations Lindbergh!

 

Thank you Ms. Flores for making our environment a priority!
