Wilmot Elementary Receives President's Environmental Youth Award & Other Accolades
Posted on 05/09/2019

Wilmot Green TeamCongratulations to the Green Team Superheroes of Wilmot Elementary for receiving the President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA). This prestigious award is an honor given by both the President of the United States and the EPA to recognize outstanding environmental projects by K-12 youth. Each year, the PEYA program awards just ten projects in the K-5 category nationally and this year, the Wilmot Elementary Green Team Superheroes are among the recipients. This exemplary team of thirteen 4th and 5th grade students have demonstrated hands-on, real-world, problem solving and leadership skills that have put their school at the forefront of sustainability. 

The Green Team Superheroes also achieved the highest Eco-Schools USA award, the Green Flag. This top Eco-Schools award is given to those who show excellence in completing three Eco-Schools USA Pathways to Sustainable Development. Not only have the Green Team Superheroes received these prestigious awards, but their reach expands beyond the halls of their school. They have been featured in the local press and on blogs for the school district and Eco-School USA, spreading their message that together, we can make a difference!
