A panel of environmental advocates, science teachers and professors selected this year’s winners based on each project’s ability to creatively present a viable solution and engage their communities.

“The Siemens Foundation and its partners are proud to honor the winning students and their mentors for their effort to tackle some of the world’s biggest environmental and energy challenges,” said Jeniffer Harper-Taylor, President of the Siemens Foundation. “Each year we are just amazed at how dedicated the next generation is to solving some of our most pressing sustainability issues.”

In addition to several other prizes, the high school grand prize winning team will receive $50,000 in scholarship money to divide among team members and a chance to present their project at a prestigious venue. Each student on the middle school grand prize winning team will receive $10,000 in savings bonds and a Discovery adventure trip to Alaska. Elementary school winners receive a Discovery Education assembly focusing on sustainability and grant for their schools.

High School Winners

Grand Prize Winners: Team Pinelands Eco Scienteers – Pinelands Regional High School – Little Egg Harbor, N.J.

• Team Pinelands Eco Scienteers discovered that using wood from nearby forests is the only option for cooking meals in many parts of the world, which results in deforestation. The team was chosen for its project, which focused on developing a viable alternative through which wood is replaced by biomass waste products such as peanut shells, pine needles, banana peels, sugar cane waste and corn stalks. The project tested methods of preparing biomass materials for briquetting and the design of low cost easy to ship mini-presses.

Second Place Winners: Team Chargers – Providence Day School – Charlotte, N.C

• Team Chargers developed a method of harnessing energy through electromagnetic inductance in an effort to become less dependent on non-reusable energy. By inserting spring-loaded “cells” made of copper coils and magnets into a standard anti-fatigue mat, team members were able to store energy that could power simple, life-saving devices, such as a steripen. This power has the ability to affect not only members of team Chargers’ own community, but communities around the world, where clean drinking water and heating sources may not be as readily available.

Third Place Winners: Team George Mason Recycling – Governor’s School @ Innovation Park – Manassas, Va.

• Team George Mason Recycling was chosen for its investigation on the current level of recycling plastics at George Mason University’s Prince William Campus. The team measured the effectiveness of different placements of recycling and trash bins and instituted a system of punishments and rewards for recycling. The team saw increased recycling awareness on campus and hopes to improve recycling rates even more.

Middle School Winners

Grand Prize Winners: Team Americans Idle – All Saints Regional Catholic School – Manahawkin, N.J.

• Team Americans Idle was chosen for its project addressing the problem of voluntary car idling. In addition to changing the drop-off and pick-up process at their school, Team Americans Idle members instituted outreach efforts and designed innovative technology devices that remind drivers when they are idling for more than three minutes. These efforts have been the catalyst for legislative initiatives in New Jersey.

Second Place Winners: Team Compost Happens – South East Junior High School – Iowa City, Iowa

• Team Compost Happens was chosen for its project on environmental problems associated with the compaction of food waste in landfills and how to change attitudes and behaviors within its community with a food waste diversion program. Schools, neighborhoods, grocery stores and restaurants participated in the project. Data showed that significant volumes of food waste were diverted from landfills as a result of the project. The students also worked with legislators to craft a bill that addresses food waste.

Third Place Winners: Team Black Gold Miners – Raymond J. Grey Junior High School – Acton, Mass.

• Team Black Gold Miners was chosen for its project on helping to reduce trash in its community through composting. The project involved raising awareness about composting among town residents and proposing school-wide and town-wide composting plans. The team’s research included conducting a town-wide survey about composting, consulting with officials from the Massachusetts DEP, as well as taking field trips to area farms and universities that run successful large-scale composting programs. To increase public awareness, the team created a website containing facts and a “how-to” guide about composting in addition to presenting research and action plans to the Acton Board of Selectman and school officials.

Elementary School Winners Grades 3-5

Grand Prize Winners: Team Give A Hoot! – Mount Madonna School – Watsonville, Calif.

• Team Give A Hoot! was chosen for its project on environmental threats to the Western Burrowing Owl. Students conducted habitat restoration, environmental clean-up and created educational binders and signs. They conducted scientific experiments to discover how native plants benefit this owl and how it reciprocates. Based on their findings, students wrote, directed and produced an educational film that has and will be shown in many venues. The film dramatically illustrates what could happen if people don’t protect this owl. Donations will be invested with local conservation groups working to protect the owl’s habitat and in Kiva.org, a micro-loan organization that brokers small loans to help subsistence people purchase tools, supplies and equipment.

Second Place Winners: Team Gilmour Gforce – Gilmour Academy – Gates Mills, Ohio

• Team Gilmour Gforce was chosen for its project to reduce its community’s use of fossil fuels and help prevent global warming. The students collected data on their school’s energy use and used that information to decide which initiatives to start. Students created posters, brochures, graphs, videos and PowerPoint presentations to help educate their community on how they can save energy. They have become energy conservation experts and activists as a result of their initiatives.

Third Place Winners: Team What a Waste! – Buena Vista Elementary School – Walnut Creek, Calif.

• Team What a Waste! was chosen for its project on the excessive the amounts of waste created at their school during lunchtime. The team members quantified the problem and then created a plan to decrease food waste at their school.

Elementary School Winners Grades K-2

Grand Prize Winners: Team Second Grade Science Club – Concord Hill School – Chevy Chase, Md.

• The Second Grade Science Club was chosen for its project on reducing water run-off from its school campus. The team worked to decrease any pollutants in run-off and clean water waste. Through careful observation of the school’s site and school buildings, the team noted that new trashcans with lids were needed, that there were major leaks in the school’s gutters and that many of the school’s water fixtures were leaking. As a result of the students’ work, the problems have been fixed. The team also planned the installation of a rain barrel and a rain garden to clean water run-off before it enters the local culvert. Finally, the students taught the student body what they had learned in an interactive, demonstration-rich assembly.

Second Place Winners: Team Earthlovers – Parley’s Park Elementary School – Park City, Utah

• Team Earthlovers was chosen for its project starting a cafeteria recycling program in its school. The team wanted to reduce the amount of garbage going from the cafeteria to the landfill, educate students and faculty about cafeteria recycling and provide a model for a sustainable cafeteria recycling program. The data recorded by Team Earthlovers shows that the weight of garbage going to the landfill each week was almost cut in half because of recycling. Students, faculty and parents are more aware and involved in reducing, reusing and recycling as a result of the team’s project.

Third Place Winners: Team Energy Patrol – Lincoln Avenue Elementary – Lakeland, Fla.

• Team Energy Patrol was chosen for its project on identifying sources of energy waste and developing solutions to conserve energy school-wide. Using a variety of sources, as well as data collected during school patrol, team members identified air conditioners and computers as the main energy wasters. Students formed an energy patrol to help teachers and classes change behaviors by setting air conditioners on no lower than 72 degrees and making sure that all computers are asleep or off when not in use. After three months of patrolling, they noticed significant changes in behavior and their energy bill.

– Finalists Announced In National Program Inspiring K-12 Students To Become Agents Of Change In Their Communities –

ISELIN, NJ, May 15, 2012 — The Siemens Foundation, Discovery Education, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the College Board today announced the finalists in the 2012 Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, a national competition designed to encourage K-12 students to tackle environmental issues in their own communities. These 72 teams– comprised of more than 850 students representing 34 states – will vie for more than $300,000 in scholarships, educational trips, and other prizes for their work on advancing the global green initiative.

The Challenge was developed in 2008 to find fledgling young scientists already at work in their own schools and communities. Since its inception, more than 62,000 of today’s youth have participated in the competition, proving themselves as “Agents of Change” in their own communities. Under the guidance of a teacher or mentor, students were tasked with identifying an environmental issue in their community, and creating a replicable green solution using web-based curriculum tools powered by Discovery Education.

The Challenge is comprised of four groups– elementary school (grades K-2 and 3-5), middle school and high school. High school teams compete for $50,000 in scholarship money to divide among team members and a chance to present their project at a prestigious event. Middle school teams compete for $10,000 savings bonds and a trip to Alaska. Elementary school students have the opportunity to win a Discovery Education assembly for their school and classroom grants. In addition to several other prizes, all state finalists also receive a green prize pack for each team member.

As a result of the Challenge, past students have been able to change their schools’ policies, open up their neighborhoods to new ideas and even inspired politicians to craft green legislation on both the state and national level.

Last year’s high school winners, team “T.E.A.M.S” from West Branch, Iowa, conducted an energy audit on its own school and made updates to reduce energy consumption. It is now working with legislators to craft a bill that encourages energy audits of all public buildings. Last year’s middle school grand prize winner, team “6000 n 60” from Kapaau, Hawaii, pushed forward a household battery recycling effort to collect 6,000 batteries in 60 days to raise awareness of proper battery disposal. Their efforts have inspired local legislators to create and introduce and battery recycling bill.

This year’s finalists’ projects include: developing a new method to detect detergent contamination in water, educating peers on the environmental effects associated with using disposable water bottles and creating a way to harness energy through electromagnetic inductance.

As part of a rigorous three-part judging process, a panel of environmental advocates, science teachers and professors selected this year’s finalists based on the project’s ability to creatively present a viable solution and engage their communities. National winners will be announced on May 30, 2012.

“Every year, some of the nation’s brightest students amaze us with their ingenuity,” said Jeniffer Harper-Taylor, president of the Siemens Foundation. “Since its inception, the Challenge has always been about finding tomorrow’s environmental leaders where they are right now – right within our schools. The Siemens Foundation and its partners are proud to honor these students and their mentors for their commitment to noticeable environmental change.”

– Prizes for Toyota Teen Driver Challenge Winners from Tennessee, New York and Missouri Include $20,000, a Toyota Driving Expectations Event and Virtual Driving Simulators –

Silver Spring, Md.(May 4, 2011) – Toyota and Discovery Education announced today the winners of the Toyota Teen Driver Video Challenge and Toyota Teen Driver Educators` Challenge, the nation`s premier teen safe driving challenges. Winners will receive a variety of cash and prizes, such as $20,000, a Toyota Driving Expectations event and virtual driving simulators. These Challenges are part of Toyota and Discovery Education`s joint program, Toyota Teen Driver, which provides educators, parents and students with comprehensive lesson plans, take-home resources, an interactive game and more to help avoid distractions while driving and stay safe behind the wheel.

Chosen from nearly 125 entries, this year`s Video Challenge Grand Prize winner of a $20,000 cash prize is Jacob Orlowski from Park Hill South High School in Riverside, Mo. Recognizing that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, Orlowski created a video inspiring his peers to take action and create real life solutions to prevent distracted driving. The Video Challenge asked high school students across the country to create a unique two-minute video describing how they would encourage safe driving among their peers. In March, ten finalists were chosen and their videos were posted on the Toyota Teen Driver website for a “fan voting” period where the public was invited to vote to determine the grand prize winner. The remaining nine finalists each received $1,500 in cash.

For the Educators` Challenge, teachers nationwide were tasked with creating a detailed action plan on how they would promote safe driving among teens in their school and in their community. This year`s winners were chosen for their plan`s creativity, content and structure. First Place winner Erin Hattabaugh from Cleveland High School in Cleveland, Tenn., has won a Toyota Driving Expectations in-school safe driving event, a virtual driving simulator for her school and a $5,000 grant to implement her winning action plan. Second Place winner Carrie Shampoe from Clymer High School in Clymer, NY, has won a virtual driving simulator for her school and a $1,500 grant to implement her winning action plan. Both winning lessons will be made available on the Toyota Teen Driver website for teachers to use.

Toyota Driving Expectations is a free program for teen drivers and their parents that has educated more nearly 20,000 participants since 2004. The program puts teens and parents behind the wheel and introduces “real world” obstacles, conditions and distractions in a safe and controlled driving environment. Virtual driving simulators, provided by Virtual Driver Interactive, are programmed with One Simple Decision™ – a program designed to stop impaired and distracted driving with a first person experience that focuses on real life consequences. The simulators will also include Toyota Teen Driver`s “Heads Up!,” an interactive road driving challenge demonstrating the perils of distracted driving.

“At Toyota, we are deeply committed to ensuring that drivers are safe at every phase of life,” said Pat Pineda, Group Vice President, National Philanthropy and the Toyota USA Foundation. “Toyota Teen Driver is an important part of that commitment, and we are thrilled with the work of the students and teachers who participated in our Video Challenge and Educators` Challenge programs. Their creativity and smart thinking in addressing solutions for such a serious public health concern are an inspiration that we are pleased to join Discovery Education in supporting.”

“Discovery Education is proud to reward these teachers and students for finding creative ways to address safe driving among teens with action items they can use in and outside of their classrooms,” said Mary Rollins, Discovery Education vice president. “We recognize the value in crafting unique learning opportunities that get communities involved in important issues that affect their everyday lives. Challenges like these underscore the need to involve educators, families and students in educating teens on the importance of creating a safe driving experience on the road.”
