Caring for Our Watersheds Contest at GMU

Lanier Eco-Team won 1st place in yesterday’s Caring for Our Watersheds Contest at George Mason University. Andrew Bengtson, Matthew Bacon, Luke Shafik, and Kajal Desai did a great job presenting to the panel of judges with 100 plus audience. Our team’s proposal was to reduce runoff and erosion on Lanier school ground by installing rain barrels and planting a sponge garden. Lanier Eco-Team competed with Fairfax, Alexandria, and Arlington County Schools. Lanier Eco-Team received $1000 award as 1st place winner, $250 for being the finalist, and additional funding for implementing the proposed project. It was great moment to see the students when Lanier MS was called as the 1st place winner! Students also had a great time visiting many exhibits at the event.
