Peabody students were among those in the state that received the Green Team Award from the Mass Department of Environmental Protection. Students, from 84 classrooms in the state, were charged with making a positive impact on the environment.
Students became involved with a variety of green activities as part of the Green Team initiative, such as starting up composting projects, increasing energy efficiency and revamping recycling programs.
“Students who participate in the Green Team program learn some of the basic environmental building blocks, like recycling and sustainability,” said Governor Deval Patrick. “Developing this kind of awareness benefits each individual student, while it also helps to further the conservation and energy-efficiency efforts undertaken by the Commonwealth.”
A team of students from the Captain Samuel Brown School received the award for their environmental work. Take a look at the specifics below for more info.School Teacher Grade Green Team Prize
