VEC-Winners2015Students from Verona’s six public schools were honored at the Town Council meeting on Monday night for their entries in the Verona Environmental Commission‘s annual Walk to School Day poster contest. The winners were (l-r):

  • “It’s Cool to Walk to School” by Jack Latson from Laning Avenue School
  • “Bike to School” by Tigerlily Fischer from H.B. Whitehorne Middle School
  • “Green Up Verona” by Nishini Fernando from Brookdale Avenue School
  • “Be Kind to the Earth” by Reese Falcone from Forest Avenue School
  • “Replant Because it is Fun” by Christopher Caldera from F. N. Brown School

Annaliese Tietjen, a senior at Verona High School, won for her poster “Live Green”, but was unable to attend because she was playing with the VHS girls varsity soccer team in their state playoff against Secaucus. (The VHS girls, who went into the playoffs in 11th place, defeated 6th-ranked Secaucus 6-2.)

Each of the winners received a check for $50. More than 200 entries were submitted for the contest, whose theme was “Sustainable Verona”. All of the entries were displayed at the schools and you can see many of them in this video:
