Dogwood and Erma Stephenson named Green Games winners

​Two “rival” Fraser Heights elementary schools have been named winners in the BC Green Games.

Dogwood and Erma Stephenson elementaries, where husband-wife teachers Ray and Lisa Warnock are the schools’ respective environmental ambassadors, have won cash and kudos for their strong commitment to energy conservation.

Dogwood was named a winner in the Elementary category, and both Dogwood and Erma Stephenson were named co-winners in the Elementary Energy Prize category.

Dogwood will receive $1,500 while Erma Stephenson will collect $500 to spend on environmental initiatives at their schools.

“It is always exciting to see when my students are given an opportunity to participate in BC Green Games, how they become even more passionate about making the world a greener place,” said Lisa Warnock. “My students have taken a personal interest in sustainability issues and they seem to feel further empowered to explore what they can do to make a difference in the environment.”

This is the fifth year of Science World’s annual provincewide contest that rewards students’ environmental success stories.

Over 4,500 votes were cast by students, teachers, parents and other community members for the winning entries. All 132 projects entered this year, as well as over 500 past projects can be viewed at bcgreengames.ca.

Science World manages the BC Green Games with input from youth, government, school district, university, science and environmental education community partners. Presenting sponsors are BC Hydro and FortisBC.
