Happy faces of the EECCOA Challenge 2020 Virtual Awards Event
MERITO Foundation’s board and staff held the EECCOA 2020 Virtual Challenge and Awards Event on Thursday, May 28, 2020. The event honored the 28 students who despite the many challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic had the courage, drive, and discipline to put together proposals to reduce the carbon footprint of their school campuses. As well as their teachers, who made a monumental effort to motivate and guide them.
Highlights of the event were the inspiring words and stunning underwater videos of Ocean Ambassador Jean-Michel Cousteau of Ocean Futures Society, and the very eloquent and heartfelt statements of the student authors of the project proposals.
