Agenda Item #8
LWV Recycling Awards
In an effort to further encourage recycling, the League of Women Voters (LWV) of the Space Coast shows it support by initiating an Awards Program for Brevard Public Schools. The program identifies best environmental practices and welcomes new perspectives into waste generation and disposal.
Awardee schools get their name added to an award plaque which can be displayed at the school for a year.
For the 2016-17 award cycle, LWV received 13 school applications. From those, nine submitted a project. Judges comprised of six volunteers from the LWV, BPS and Brevard County Solid Waste Department, selected three awardees and two schools to receive honorable mention.
The schools selected to receive the award this year are:
Freedom 7 Elementary School (two projects submitted)
Grade/Class: 5/Mrs. Hoag's 5th Grade led by students Morgan and Sienna
Herbert C. Hoover Middle School
Grade/Class: 7-8/ESE Supported Level Class
Palm Bay Magnet High School
Honorable mention has been awarded to:
Stone Magnet Middle School
