2017 Winners Announced
Thank you to all of the students who participated in this contest. The $1,000 first place prize was awarded to students from School Without Walls at Francis Stevens for their proposal, “A Drippy Way to a Better Watershed” which consists of installing a drip irrigation system to reduce water waste and ponding that led to mosquito problems.
