Eco Heroes Award Ceremony

 

Earth Day is special in Bloomington because we’re highlighting the great things our youth do for the environment: organize an ecology club, green the prom, make their own clothes from second hand clothing, use water saving showerheads, grow watermelons, build animal shelters, pick up litter, recycle, and much more. 

To spread the word and honor these actions, the City of Bloomington’s Environmental Commission is conducting the second annual Eco-Hero Award Contest. The goal of this competition is not only to encourage youth to build positive lifelong behaviors, but also to remind adults of the importance of thinking long-term for the environment and our children. Participants include kindergarten through twelfth graders submitting essays and art under the theme, “How I put the "I" in Environment.”

Winners will receive a certificate of recognition from Mayor Mark Kruzan and Environmental Commission Chair Carrie Albright will be handing out prizes from locally-owned businesses that support the environment. All are welcomed to attend. As stated by Carrie Albright, "We are inspired by the enthusiasm of Bloomington students and are excited to reward that positive energy with donations provided by local businesses. Part of this competition is to show students that they are supported by their community members.
