Florida Green School Awards: Hyatt Regency, Orlando – Oct. 29

The Florida Department of Education’s Office of Environmental Education, along with the Florida Green School Network’s partners, recognized 15 — out of a pool of more than 100 — honorees for their green initiatives. Among them: Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School’s Live Green Campaign eighth-grader Erin Donahue (with check). Erin, 13, earned the award for developing and launching the K-Cup Crusade, which used the coffee and tea packets to rebuild community gardens lost during Hurricane Sandy. ‘It’s amazing what we kids can do when we have adults and teachers who listen and encourage us,’ she said.
