The City of Ventura's Environmental Sustainability Division in partnership with Agromin Premium Soil Products and EJ Harrison offers the Environmental Leader Award in recognition of Earth Day. In addition to City recognition there is a monetary award to help further fund sustainability projects at schools in the city. All public and private schools within the Ventura City limits that demonstrate exemplary efforts to help our environment are encouraged to apply.
Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Winner!
We are happy to announce that ATLAS Elementary School won our 2016-2017 Environmental Leadership Award.
Students and staff at ATLAS Elementary School have demonstrated excellence in sustainability through their recycling, electronic waste, and battery collection programs. Starting at a young age, students at ATLAS Elementary School are taught to be good stewards of the environment. In their Makerspace classroom, students engineer their own designs out of recyclable materials. In recognition of their efforts, the Environmental Sustainability Division, in partnership with EJ Harrison presented them with the 2016-2017 Environmental Leadership Award.
