BOSTON – On Thursday, June 11, 2015, a group of 35 students from Luther Conant Elementary School in Acton visited the State House to meet with their State Representative, Jennifer Benson. Rep. Benson presented the group with a citation honoring them for winning the Massachusetts Elementary School of the Year award from the National Energy Education Development (NEED) project.

The elementary school’s “Green Team”, as they are called, were recognized by NEED for their project promoting energy conservation and sustainability.

“I am so proud of what you have done for your school,” said Rep. Benson, addressing the students at the State House’s Grand Staircase. “I hope you continue making a difference. Keep up the good work!”

State Senator Jamie Eldridge also attended the event, and both Rep. Benson and the Senator took a photo with the students.
