Springfield YES Team Presents at the Brown County County Congress

Springfield High School

On Friday, October 30, the Springfield YES Team presented information about past projects and future goals at the Brown County County Congress in Sleepy Eye, MN. A few of the items shared were information about the 2009 Carbon Footprint Challenge, the school recycling initiative, the cafeteria composting initiative, and plans for a green roof on a portion of Springfield’s high school building. Students then entertained questions from the audience, and stayed on to listen to a speaker presenting on carbon cap and trade. Springfield’s participation in this event was the subject of a front page article in New Ulm’s newspaper, “The Journal”, on Saturday, Oct. 31.
