Wind for Schools Project Host School Seeks Sustainability Session Proposals

February 14, 2012

Students from the PeaceJam Club at Ponderosa High School and Douglas County School District in Denver, Colorado, are issuing a call for presenters for the first Colorado SAVES Student Sustainability Summit on May 4 - 5, 2012. The Colorado SAVES (Students as Voices for Environmental Sustainability) Summit aims to bring high school students from across the state together to educate, share, and inspire environmental stewardship. The group is seeking session proposals from student groups, school districts, organizations, and other community partners. Priority will be given to sessions that specifically address sustainability in schools and school districts in Colorado. Interactive, non-traditional, and outdoor workshops are encouraged. Presenters will be asked to repeat their session during three 60-minute time slots on May 5. Presenters can anticipate 20 to 30 high school students per workshop. Please submit the application to by March 9, 2012. Ponderosa High School is a Wind for Schools project host school, so wind-related sessions would be especially welcome.
