A group of Gwynn Park High School students was named the winner of an environmental sustainability competition in Washington, D.C.

The Brandywine school team was presented with a $6,000 scholarship for winning Howard University’s Environmental Sustainability Competition on March 23 that involved using problem-solving and presentation skills against seven other high schools in the metropolitan area, according to Prince George’s County Public Schools officials.

A team from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt was a finalist in the competition and was awarded $250 for Best Oral Presentation. Suitland High School and Parkdale High School of Riverdale Park each won $250 for Best PowerPoint Presentation.

“We are very proud of all the teams who represented our district,” PGCPS interim superintendant Alvin Crawley said in a statement. “We appreciate the opportunity provided by Howard University for students to develop creative ways to tackle the real-world issues of conservation and sustainability.”
