Students in Carmel Middle School’s Green Club wanted to make a difference at their school, so when the opportunity came along to apply for a micro-grant to fund a green project, they discussed how they could make a significant impact. The students all agreed that their school generated lots of trash, much of which could be recycled. The students applied for funds through the Carmel Green Teen Micro-Grant program to buy ten recycling containers for the middle school. Some containers will be placed in the cafeteria and others will be put out at both athletic and fine arts events. Students in the club will spend time educating their fellow students about what can be recycled and where to put it through live announcements, posters, and the school newspaper. Congratulations, Carmel Middle School!
