Ky. Students Can Apply for Grants to Save Energy

As reported Monday, by the Associated Press:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky school students who work to save energy or make schools more energy efficient could receive $800 grants to pay for the projects.

The Kentucky Green and Healthy Schools program funds may also be used to reduce school waste, conserve water or plant trees.

The program is administered by the Kentucky Environmental Education Council using stimulus funds.

The Education and Workforce Development Cabinet says that since the program began in the fall of 2009, 17 grants have been awarded.
