‘Project Green’ Showcase

e-Connections Post Project Green

Fourteen SCUSD school “green teams” showcased projects to make their campuses more eco-friendly at the district’s first annual Project Green Showcase held at The Met Sacramento High School on Wednesday, April 18. Project Green started this year when campuses across the district formed “green teams” of students – supported by parents, teachers and staff – to conduct “green audits” of facilities. The teams then studied the results and researched recommendations for improvements ranging from replacing old windows to installing water-wise plumbing fixtures.

The students presented their recommendations to members of a blue-ribbon panel of local experts from the fields of architecture, engineering, energy, land-use planning and water management at Wednesday’s event. The panel will judge the exhibits and award funds from the 2002 facilities bond measure. A future event to showcase the awards is being planned.
