State schools Superintendent Randy Dorn has recognized four schools for their commitment to environmental leadership.
The schools incorporate health and energy management into academics through connections between science, technology, engineering and math, civic skills and green career pathways. The recognition was an extension of a national competition at the U.S. Department of Education, which named finalists from several states as “Green Ribbon Schools.”
Washington had three public school winners and one private school winner among 72 schools that won the national award. Camelot Elementary School in the Federal Way School District was a local winner.
