Broward County is again challenging students, teachers, staff and parents to reduce their carbon footprint at school and at home.
The Conservation and Climate Change (C3) Challenge is an educational competition presented by the Broward County Pollution Prevention, Remediation and Air Quality Division and the Broward County School Board.
The 2010 challenge was won by Hallandale Elementary, whose efforts resulted in the reduction of about one million pounds of carbon dioxide.
A total reduction of more than 10 million pounds of carbon dioxide was achieved by the 38 participating schools.
This year, a winner will be chosen from an elementary, middle and high school. The three winning schools will receive prizes including books and DVDs about climate change, a NatureScape tree planting, e-certificates and a sustainable plaque.
The competition ends Feb.3, 2012.
