Cardinal Stritch High School Awarded a $10,000 BP A+ for Energy Grant

Cardinal Stritch High School received a $10,000 A+ for Energy grant from the BP Energy Education Program. The school received the grant at a reception and awards program held on June 22, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg.
The grant, entitled “The Green Cardinal Project,” is designed to use the visual, computer and language arts to educate students about multiple methods of recycling and conserving energy.
“We will organize our Art and Recycling Club to collect recyclable items from classrooms,” explains Patricia Bails-Saelzler, art instructor at Cardinal Stritch High School. “Art students will paint colorful classroom receptacles for collecting recyclable materials. Our computer and art students will design flyers and posters for display and distribution. And our English students will write scripts that will be used in multi-media video presentations to support the “Green Cardinal Project.”
BP recognizes teachers who set the standard for excellence in education, including innovative and motivational experiences that deepen students’ knowledge about energy and energy conservation, according to Mary Caprella, BP’s Director of Public Affairs.
