Champions of the Environment award - Burke High & Jane Edwards Elementary

Benjamin Plants and Peter Locher, teachers of World Geography and Earth Science at Burke High, have won a Champions of the Environment award. They will receive a $2,000 grant and since their project was ranked as outstanding, they will receive an extra $150. 

The co-teachers will use the funds for an oyster reef habitat restoration project that they'll be doing with their students in spring 2019. 

Paula Myers-Burns, CD teacher and Green Liaison for Jane Edwards Elementary, also received a Champions of the Environment award for $2,000 to build a hydroponic garden tower.
