BCPS’s First Green Ribbon Nomination

Wellwood International is proud to announce their nomination for the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon (GRS) Award, and is honored to be the first Baltimore County Public School to receive this nomination. Wellwood International is dedicated to providing an education with an emphasis on environmental awareness and stewardship. The Green Ribbon program selects schools that foster wellness, protect health, save energy, reduce costs, create environmentally sustainable learning spaces, and provide environmental education.

Wellwood International’s Green Ribbon process and green initiatives are led by S.T.A.T. teacher, Allison Devereaux, and classroom teacher, Morgan Stein. As Green School Coordinators, they continuously work to provide and promote environmental education and sustainable practices. This year they have worked to implement Baltimore County's composting pilot program and look forward to hosting Wellwood's 6th Annual Earth Day Celebration.

Wellwood International has been a Maryland Green School since 2015. Below you will find the link to our Green School Application and the MSDE Green Ribbon Press Release.
