• Glendale High School Team Wins Environmental Award


    GLENDALE (CNS) – A team from Glendale Unified’s Clark Magnet High School was among eight nationwide to win an environmental award that includes $10,000 in scholarship money, $3,000 for the school and $2,000 for the teacher adviser.

    The students were selected for the award by Lexus Eco Challenge for starting a native plant garden at the La Crescenta campus and partnering with an environmental group to produce seeds to be planted in national parks.

    The science and technology magnet school at 4747 New York Ave. was the only California school selected.

    The two grand prizes of $15,000 each went to teams from schools in New York and South Carolina.

    The intent of the contest, now entering its seventh year, is to develop an idea that could be replicated elsewhere to make a positive difference in the world, said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager.
