Anastasia, the second place winner in the 9-11 age group, said “I was excited to win because I didn’t think that I would because I have never won anything before.”
This past week, 47 elementary, middle, and high school students participated in the Sustainability Poster Contest sponsored by Raytheon, in which they were inspired to create posters promoting sustainability. Raytheon Engineers came out to the San Pedro Boys and Girls Club to speak with our kids about the importance of using resources wisely and the steps Raytheon has taken in being more sustainable. Nine winners were selected and received a variety of prizes, including Disney tickets, bicycles, and iPad minis, all which were donated by Raytheon. Raytheon also provided backpacks with schools supplies and ice cream to all 47 participants.
