Congratulations “Think Green and Clean” Winners!
The contest encouraged students from kindergarten through twelfth grade to submit ideas on how to conserve water, energy, or both in their local Las Vegas Valley community. Ideas were submitted in the form of written essays, drawings and models between September 21 and October 16, 2015, for a chance to win cash prizes.
We’d like to congratulate this year’s winners, and thank them for their participation in the Think Green & Clean Contest!â
- Middle School, First Place: Ardian Agolli, seventh grade at Victoria Fertitta Middle School. Ardian is awarded $200 for his essay and picture illustration on eco-friendly and biodegradable oil plantations and rigs. He explains that oil rigs should double as greenhouses, producing food for the crews and, in turn, energy. He explains how oil rigs can be powered using wind and solar energy and lastly, that scrap material should be recycled and repurposed for items and parts around the plantation.
- Middle School, Second Place: Kaitlyne Ibay, seventh grade at Victoria Fertitta Middle School. Kaitlyne is awarded $100 for her essay and picture illustration on how going outdoors can save energy.
