Pumas for the Planet Quarterly Award Winner

Once a quarter, parents students, and teachers nominate students k-12 who are working to make an impact on our planet. Peak to Peak is pleased to honor the winner for Q1, Lena Crotty, a current 8th grader. Please see the video from Dr Mosca and why she nominated Lena for the Pumas for the Planet award.

The Pumas for the Planet Award provides monthly recognition of one student in our K-12 community who strives to make a difference for the environment and the natural world. Reasons to nominate a student are many; celebrating a connection to the natural world, service work for the environment, raising awareness at school about recycling and compost, volunteering at an animal shelter or other organization, and many more! Once the submissions are received, members of the Peak to Peak Wellness Council will review and present the award to the winning student once per quarter. Each winner will be highlighted in the Peak to Peak newsletter and on the school website and Facebook pages. Additionally, each winner will receive a special eco-friendly prize and a certificate. Submissions can be made by parents, teachers, mentors, or friends. To submit a nomination, please email Monika Bunting with the following information.

1- Full name of nominee and grade

2- Photo of student, preferably participating in a photo highlighting why they are being nominated.

3- An explanation of why you are nominating this individual.
