Project ReCharge Teacher and Student Recognition Event 2022
Thank you for attending and supporting the Project ReCharge Teacher and Student Recognition Event on May 18th!! Over 150 students, teachers, parents, school representatives, business professionals, and community members joined us in person and virtually! We would also like to give a special congratulations to our Project ReCharge Teachers of the Year – Teneya Cramer and Chris Bires. We are so fortunate to work with such an amazing, dedicated group of teachers, so thank you for helping celebrate them!
“It was a very impressive production. One of the best hybrid events I’ve been to, especially on the online end. It was really inspiring!”
We are excited to announce that Envirolution will be funding six student sustainability projects from Swope Middle School, Dilworth STEM academy, and Empire Elementary. A few of the projects include helping their home become more energy efficient, starting a school composting program, and advocating for implementing solar panels in their school. Congratulations to all the students who submitted and presented projects – your hard work and dedication are truly inspiring and will make a positive impact on our community and the environment at large.
Participants had a blast engaging in hands-on activities including the energy bike at Envirolution’s table, enjoyed some refreshments provided by TMCC Catering, and had fun taking photos in our photo booth! KOLO 8 was also able to stop by and created some great coverage for the event that emphasized the impact Project ReCharge has been able to achieve: KOLO 8 Coverage.
Envirolution would like to thank the sponsors that made this event possible including NV Energy Foundation‘s CLEAN Grant program and Tesla’s K-12 Education Fund. Make sure to check out NV Energy’s video showing appreciation and support to teachers and our future sustainability leaders. We would also like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the businesses that donated raffle prizes including, Calavera Barbell, Healing Wizdom, Comma Coffee, In-N-Out, Moonstone NV, Yogurt Beach, Wild Island, The Union, PJ & Company, Full Belly Deli, and Schussboom Brewing Co.
