Get Recognized!

2012 November 13

While you may already be helping to protect the environment through a class project, an after school club or by group activities such as community gardening or carpooling, why not get recognized for your contribution?

Apply for the President’s Environmental Youth Award by December 31, 2012.

The President’s Environmental Youth Award Program honors environmental projects from students in grades K-12 who have worked to promote environmental awareness.  This could mean anything from using cleaner, renewable energy sources to collecting rainwater for plants in your neighborhood.   Previous winners created a Radon Awareness Project, in which they learned that kids, no matter how young, can positively impact environment.  Visit  and apply!

Shelby Egan is a student volunteer in the EPA’s Air and Radiation Division in Region 5, and is currently obtaining her Master’s degree in Urban Planning and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  She has a passion for protecting natural resources, cities she’s never been to and cooking any recipe by The Pioneer Woman.

    Carrying out an environmental activity with all of the class after school,
    It is a splendid idea.
    Regardless of people and the school year of local adult
    It will become the better activity if I can do it by environmental activity.
