Take a peak at budding environmentalist Shealan's essay below. Shealan's essay received an Honorable Mention from our judges in our Student Essay Contest.
I made a promise to myself at the beginning of the school year that I wouldn’t drive to school all year long. And so far, so good. Every day I bundle up for the cold, rainy weather. If it’s rainy, I walk so I can hold an umbrella. If it’s cloudy, I ride my bike, and if it’s sunny, I ride my scooter. When I walk I think about all the animals being killed by the pollution. It makes me feel sad. If everybody would walk or ride then this earth would last a lot longer and there would be more plants and animals.
