Awards Granted – Sustainable Milton Green Student Leadership Award
Sustainable Milton is seeking to promote the next generation of environmental leaders. We currently have several opportunities for Milton High School students who desire to become more actively involved in sustainability while earning Community Service Credit. For further information with regards to student opportunities please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check with the guidance department for our Community Service questionnaire.
Additionally, Sustainable Milton grants annual leadership awards to graduating Milton High seniors who have demonstrated a passion for the environment and who have taken action toward promoting community awareness, education and solutions.
The Sustainable Milton Green Student Leadership Award was created in 2016 to acknowledge Milton High School seniors with a passion for bettering the earth’s environmental health; who take initiative and are action-oriented toward promoting community awareness, education and solutions; and who motivate and engage peers and adults in the school and local community creatively and collaboratively. These students keep the mission of Sustainable Milton alive. Sustainable Milton is proud to present them with this award, and we look forward to hearing back about their progress after high school graduation.
