Eco Warriors receive honourable mention

The Eagle View Elementary Suzuki Eco Warriors received an honourable mention in this year's BC Green Games

A North Island elementary school has been recognized for its project in this year’s BC Green Games.

The Eagle View Elementary Suzuki Eco Warriors received an honourable mention in the elementary category of the BC Green Games. Their project was a composting program, created in the hopes of reducing waste going to the local landfill. The students made class presentations to bring awareness of the benefits of composting and obtained composting buckets donated by local businesses.

Their team name is in honour of David Suzuki, the Canadian environmental activist.

BC Green Games is Science World British Columbia’s award-winning environmentally focused digital media contest. The Games encourages students from kindergarten to grade 12 to document and share their environmental action stories on topics such as energy conservation, transportation, school-yard greening, recycling, composting and community stewardship.

The Suzuki Eco Warriors submitted a video featuring students describing their project from various locations around the school. To view the video and other projects, visit
