Winners of the Student Climate Change Solutions Contest

We reported here last July that Madeline Kaplan, author of the children's book "Planet Earth Gets Well", who partners with Eco-Libris to plant a tree for every copy printed of the book, is partnering with Earth Day Network to promote the 2010 Student Climate Change Solutions Contest for K-4th graders in schools across the country.

And we've got an update on the winners of the contest:

First Place: Saham Alkaify, 4th Grade, PS/MS 20, Police Officer George J. Werdann, III School in the Bronx, NY 86% of U.S. Energy Consumption is Fossil Fuel!

My poster shows ideas for solutions to stopping climate change. Recycling helps our planet keep valuable resources and stop waste. We can all work together to recycle many products we all use everyday. My poster shows some ideas for how everyday products can be recycled into new ones.
