Go Green Competition Winner for 2017

Our compost experiment won!

Back in April, our 10-14 year old group of STEAM participants wrote a grant for the Economic Awareness Council. In May, we received funds and sent in our results to the Go Green Entrepreneurship Competition Committee.

I am pleased to announce that in June we were notified that we won! This is the first time the students wrote the grant as well as winning. Their instructor has written the project in the past and the highest level of achievement was 2nd place in 2015.  Previous projects included recycled robots, wind turbines and hydroponics.

Participants will be notified when their prize packs come to OLPL. They will each receive a solar car kit, gift card, and other green items.
