Hi Green Earl & Friends,
In this KO E-tip digest, I have a fun opportunity for you -- Please click here http://www.earthdayeverydaychallenge.com/ to vote for Fayette Academy, one of the superstar schools using Kilowatt Ours in rural Somerville, Tennessee. This school has used the Kilowatt Ours curriculum for several years, and is one of 20 finalists selected for the "Earth Day Every Day School Challenge" award of $20,000 to further its environmental projects. Watch the short video and read the inspiring essay about all the good these students have done to make a difference, then vote!
Here is a message and additional information from Donna Burrus, the teacher at Fayette who watched Kilowatt Ours several years ago and claims that it energized her students to start down this path:
"HELP! Time is running out. WE need your vote NOW. Go to http://www.earthdayeverydaychallenge.com/ and vote for Fayette Academy. Voting is simple. Simply select the vote now button and provide your email and birthday information. Voters must be 18 years old and one vote allowed per email address. You may select the video to watch, read the essay or just hit the vote button. Please support our school and young leaders of tomorrow who have been busy working towards a sustainable tomorrow." -- Donna Burrus, Ecology Club Sponsor
