Four local environmentally savvy student Airdrie groups won the Eco Youth Award presented by Mayor Peter Brown and Fortis Alberta.
On February 8 and 9, the City of Airdrie presented four groups of youth in Airdrie with an Eco Youth Award.
The City of Airdrie has been doing the Eco Youth Awards for the last two or three years.
“It’s a good initiative to have a chance for schools and students and other youth groups to be recognized for their environmental projects,” said Tracy Pagenhardt of Waste & Recycling Services for the City of Airdrie.
“A lot of these students put in their own time after school hours to help make their projects a success, which is wonderful to see that kind of initiative.”
The projects done by the students range anywhere from instituting recycling programs to gardening tower projects.
The winners were chosen based on showing the kind of initiative they took in their projects. They then received a cash award and a certificate for making a difference for the environment.
