Amy Adams
Estancia Middle School
Estancia, NMUSA

We decorated 450 bags!

About our project: Estancia is a small town in the heart of New Mexico. The whole middle school participated as part of their projects class--this nine weeks, the classes are concentrating on community service. There is only one small grocery store in Estancia, Sturgess, and they agreed to partner with us. The students researched the topic of Earth Day and reviewed the website before decorating their own bags. They then voted on the best bags in each projects class and delivered the 450 bags to Sturgess' Supermarket the week before Earth Day so the decorated bags could go out all week. The students also combined the celebration of Earth Day with the town of Estancia's Clean Up Day. Promotion for the town clean up also went on the bags and posters by the students went up all over school and local town businesses.

Look at our pictures!
