Del Norte HS award

Del Norte High School received National Energy Achievement Award

NEED’s annual Youth Awards for Energy Achievement competition recognized Del Norte as the New Mexico Senior School of the Year for outstanding education project. The school’s Building Buddies’ winning entry, The E.A.R.T.H. (Enthusiastic Advocates Respecting The Host), is a digital scrapbook of their many energy saving activities (some presented in this section). Mr. Lazar and three of the students traveled to Washington, D.C. in June 2016 to participate in NEED’s Energy Achievement program and attend the national recognition ceremony. NEED funded registration and travel costs and the Gas Company of New Mexico donated $500 toward hotel fees.
