Winners of UNLESS Project Announced

Millbridge and DHS Green Teams Announced WINNERS!

The Philadelphia Zoo Announed the Winners This Morning

Both Millbridge Elementary and Delran High School's Green Teams effectively engaged the public about the impact of reducing paper usage on habitats, specifically that of the Red Panda. The Albert M. Greenfield UNLESS Contest was created to inspire solutions and actions to impact the future of wildlife. Over the past four years the Zoo has engaged more than 10,000 schoolchildren from more than 200 schools in the Delaware Valley region as part of this initiative. Two key conservation issues – habitat destruction related to palm oil production and climate change have been the themes of the contest.

During the open application process, Millbridge and DHS Green Teams provided the Zoo with an initial project proposal. Following the application process and over the course of their project, our teams visited the Zoo for a class and participated in a virtual class to learn more about their project topic and how it impacts wildlife. The students had to think critically about a real-world issue that is impacting a number of wild animals.

Final project reports were reviewed by a panel of independent judges who choose the top 20 schools and the final awardees. We are honored to have both Green Teams awarded in their first UNLESS Project challenge!
