We are proud to introduce this years “Go Green Grant” recipients!
These cool projects promote environmental awareness and bring sustainability to the forefront in their communities. Way to go!


  • Arynna and Salena from Dearborn Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology are launching classroom recycling and introducing hydroponic gardening.
  • Preston (from Monteith Elementary) is a member of the Litter Critters and will be cleaning up their playground by removing trash.
  • Mariam (from Woodcreek Elementary) is a member of the Junior Optimist Club and will be providing plants in all classrooms to promote better air quality.
  • Macey, Angelina, Abby and Brian (from St. Valentine) are conserving energy by installing *LED lights throughout school.

I will be running around the next few weeks presenting checks and congratulating these students and schools.

*LED hallway lights are significantly more energy efficient than old school incandescent. They use less electricity, last longer, do not contain mercury and save schools money.   Source: http://eartheasy.com/live_led_bulbs_comparison.html
