Pleasanton high school seniors, Lauren Londono, Anika Nicolas, Bryan Luo, Varsha Madapoosi, and Paulina Umansky, received scholarships totaling $4,500 for their conservation and sustainability work in Pleasanton. Collectively the students conducted waste audits, implemented recycling and organics programs, conducted Earth Day events, and worked on a project to bring environmental education to elementary students.

The students were active participants in a club that formed at Amador Valley High School in 2016, Local Leaders of the 21st Century, which helps students get involved in local environmental public policy. This year, the club lead the initiative in instituting recycling and organics sorting on Pleasanton Unified School District’s campuses. This allows schools to adopt an integrated waste management policy in order to comply with state laws requiring schools to recycle and separate organics from trash.
