June 03, 2021
For 30 years, the Alberta Emerald Foundation (emeraldfoundation.ca) has been recognizing and celebrating the outstanding environmental achievements of large and small businesses, individuals, not-for-profit associations, community groups, youth, and governments across Alberta through its Emerald Awards. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Emerald Awards ceremony was held online on the evening of June 1, 2021 (click here to watch).
ABCRC is a proud partner of the Alberta Emerald Foundation, and sponsors the Emerald Awards' Legacy Education Award. The Education award acknowledges those that have raised the bar by showing leadership and creativity in educating students of all ages about environmental matters. This award aligns with ABCRC's belief that educating and encouraging Alberta's youth to develop new, creative and innovative projects will help foster the next generation of environmentally-minded leaders.
The 2021 Education award winner was Lacombe Composite High School, selected for their innovative building of an outdoor classroom with a living rooftop garden, a goat sanctuary and solar power though their EcoVision Friends of the Greenhouse (FOG) Program. They receive a certificate, a digital logo, a profile in the Sharing Stories content on Alberta Emerald Foundation's website, and a $2000 grant that they can use to continue their work or donate to an environmental charity of their choice. Congratulations, Lacombe Composite High School!
