First Annual Loudoun Student Environmental Action Showcase
The inaugural Loudoun Student Environmental Action Showcase (SEAS) will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, from 5-8 p.m. at Heritage High School in Leesburg, Virginia. The event is co-hosted by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), the Loudoun Environmental Stewardship Alliance (LESA), and the Northwest Virginia Regional GREENetwork.
The purpose of Loudoun SEAS is to amplify youth voice in environmental problem solving by showcasing to a real-world audience how students have meaningfully contributed to environmental stewardship in Loudoun County.
The highlight of the event will be student-created exhibitions of environmentally-themed projects and ongoing activities. Individual students, green/eco-action teams, environmental clubs and youth groups are invited to share their work on reducing waste, conserving energy, improving water quality, preserving natural habitat and other sustainability-minded projects in their schools and communities.
Participation is open to all K-12 students in Loudoun County representing public and private schools, homeschoolers and members of community-based youth organizations such as 4-H clubs and Scout troops.
Elected officials, public administrators, corporate executives, state education officials and other honored guests are invited to provide feedback on the exhibitions of student work.
In addition, local nonprofits, government agencies, and other Community Partners will be onsite to provide hands-on environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) learning activities and discuss volunteer and career opportunities.
All event attendees—students, parents, educators and community leaders—will be able to network, build knowledge and gain ideas on how to further environmental education and stewardship in Loudoun County.
