A really cool contest arrived in front of me today and I'm encouraging everyone to enter it. It's called the America's Greenest School contest. All they want is a 500 word essay about why you think Groton is the "greenest" school in the country. The winning district wins a hybrid school bus (worth $200,000) and the student wins $3000 and possibly a $5000 scholarship. We have A LOT to write about. We have an awesome recycling program, the Rot-in-Groton compost program that saves over 300 lbs of waste a week, and a student veggie garden that provides food for the cafeteria. We just need some ambitious students to write about it. Please see me for more details and/or help with the essay.
