The Earth Heroes at School Program celebrates King County students, teachers, staff, and volunteers who implement projects at their school or beyond to protect our environment. Is someone at your school an outstanding advocate for conserving natural resources? Do you have a school program that reduces your school's impact on our environment? If so, nominate them for an Earth Heroes at School award!

Winners are honored each year at a reception featuring entertainment, refreshments, and presentation of awards. The 2012 awards were presented by King County Executive Dow Constantine and Deputy Executive Fred Jarrett.
