Media Advisory: Schools awarded for being 'cool'
  
Councillor David Soknacki will host tomorrow's presentation of Cool Schools
awards to 12 Toronto schools. Each school will receive a grant for up to $2,000
for projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution and
climate change. Before Council breaks for lunch, the Mayor's Chair will welcome
the students to City Hall.

Date: Thursday, November 8

Time: 12:15 to 1:30 p.m.

Place: Members' Lounge, City Hall

Councillors representing the wards of the winning schools will give the awards
to student representatives. Students will make short presentations about their
school's winning projects.

Projects vary from activities such as school-ground naturalization, food
gardens, installation of bike racks, bike workshops, anti-idling campaigns,
energy conservation programs, curriculum materials and more.

Cool Schools is a program of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund and the Clean Air
Partnership. This year alone, the program has awarded $73,783 to schools that
engage their students in reducing air pollution, fighting climate change and
making their schools healthier and more enjoyable places of learning.
