Scholars McDonald, Shelby, Hunt, Turner, and Wright, 8th graders here at Carter G. Woodson Academy, are competing in the Lexus Eco Challenge. The Lexus Eco Challenge is where middle and high schoolers try to improve their communities by participating in three separate environmentally themed competitions. This helps students and teachers help the planet turn “greener”. 
We are competing in the Air and Climate category. We are asking everyone to visit: ThunderClap to support our cause.

Thunderclap is a crowd speaking platform, created to help us be heard. This will help us in implementing our action plan. Also, the thunderclap will be extended to December 5th, 2014 (You will receive another email as well). As of right now, we have 7 supporters. We desperatly need 100 supporters. We need everyone's hlep. Once you receive this message, email the Energy Enforcers replying "Supported",at (If more than 1 person reply "Supported" and then put the number of people who are supporting the thunderclap with you beside it) (Ex. "Supported3") Also check out the new website Engery Enforcers  and be sure to ask your families and friends to support this action as well. Thank you.​
