A group of Long Island middle school students prove that you are never too young to care about the environment.  A dozen students of Long Island Pine Barrens Society’s “Water Quality Improvement Contest” received Environmental Achievement Awards at the Suffolk County Water Authority Education Center, Hauppauge, NY on July 7.

The winners, selected from 100 finalists who participated in the Pine Barrens “Middle School Students Go To College” contest, brought their A-game and displayed the projects designed to reduce water contamination on Long Island.

More than 460 Syracuse and Utica students are better prepared for college thanks to On Point for College and National Grid Foundation. On Point for College offered pre-college orientations to instill college knowledge to help students transition to a college environment. The students also received information on financial aid, study skills and time management.

Melanie Littlejohn, board member, National Grid Foundation, joined the students last summer.  National Grid Foundation supports On Point for College and along with a program grant provided backpacks for the students so they may be better equipped for a successful transition to college.
