EDMOND, Okla. – The Environmental Protection Agency is recognizing a group of Edmond students.

A team of 21 students from Saint Mary Episcopal School in Edmond were awarded the regional 2013-2014 President’s Environmental Youth Award.

Their project,”Where Have All the Flowers and Birds Gone” focused on revitalizing three acres of barren land.

The students’ project cut down the amount of blowing red-dirt by planting seeds and growing a garden.

“These students are truly making a difference and we thank them for their part in making the world more sustainable,” said EPA Regional Administrator Ron Curry. “It is amazing to see such young pioneers take action in improving the world around them.”

The award honors students with creative projects that help make the world more sustainable.
