Shelby, the daughter of Ned and Maria Stille, Bellflower, is a student in Christina Harms’ class at Montgomery City Elementary School.
Shelby’s slogan reminds all of us that being energy efficient – in lighting, heating and air conditioning, and transportation – not only has environmental benefits, but is also a smart move economically.
Earth Day 2013 represents the Department of Natural Resources’ 19th year sponsoring the event, which will include educational displays and activities from the department as well as a number of other state and federal agencies. The day’s events will also include a number of stage shows and contests. Although geared toward upper elementary school age students, the event is free and open to the public.
