Congrats to the Green Ribbon School Winners!

President Obama announced the winners this week.  78 schools in 29 states won the Green Ribbon School Award.  Green Ribbon Schools not only green the school environments through energy efficient lighting, recycling, school gardens and composting…they also educate the students about how to be green.  Check out the winners here and see who won in your state:  http://www2.ed.gov/programs/green-ribbon-schools/2012-schools.doc
