From North Shore Kid- Vote to Help Rockport Elementary Win $25k

Vote to Help Rockport Elementary Win $25k

The proposed nature center will encourage learning by doing and responsibility

Jessica Kagle, founder of Kestrel Educational Adventures, has entered the Green Awards contest on behalf of Rockport Elementary School for an award of $25,000 that will put them on the road to designing and building a nature center in the school’s new science room. You can vote once every day, and every vote increases the odds that this money will be awarded for this purpose.

The plan for the nature center is to combine outdoor play and discovery with an academic lesson plan that will help children learn about the environment around them while connecting with the natural world.  Teams of students will plan investigations into the surrounding environment, then put together and maintain displays to aid in teaching others about the surrounding woodlands and the seasonal changes that occur in this unique habitat. The public will be invited to visit, and learn from presentations by the students who take part in the program.

Voting is easy, just go to this link and click the ‘Vote Now’ button: https://www.thegreenawards.com/Default.aspx?v=119

Vote daily until the voting ends at midnight on March 27th
