See the winning schools in the Guardians of the Water 2017 call for projects
Winning projects include construction of cisterns, planting of saplings and informative marches on the topic.
The “Guardians of the Water” award is an International Paper Institute initiative that asks participants to create educational projects related to rational use of water resources inside and outside of school.
This year, it was the Luiz Antônio region’s turn to actively participate in actions, involving educators at the elementary and middle school levels, with each winning school receiving up to BRL 7,000 to make their projects a reality. On June 14, the winners will visit the International Paper factory in Luiz Antônio to attend a celebratory coffee and start implementing the winning projects.
