The winners of the 2019-20 Reis Award are Helen Moniz and Hannah Buzgo with Orla Berry for their grant, The Fight for a Better Planet - Increasing Sustainability at Medfield High School (MHS). The vision of their grant is to make long-lasting changes to increase sustainability in our schools' cafeterias. The grant will fund reusable trays with subdivided compartments that will eliminate the use of approximately 30,500 styrofoam plates per year in the MHS cafeteria. Hannah's and Helen's innovative improvements have the potential to impact all students and all schools in our district. Congratulations girls! Thank you for your dedication and for initiating this movement to make our schools more environmentally conscious.
