Way to Go! Waitsfield Elementary School
The Vermont Safe Routes to School Resource Center partnered with Way to Go! Vermont to encourage more schools than ever to participate in the May 13-17 Way to Go! Clean Commuter Challenge.
The school with the greatest percentage increase of student who arrived by a 'green' form of transportation is crowned the School Carbon Cup Champion for the 2012/2013 school year!
This year's winner is Waitsfield Elementary! During their Way to Go celebration, 77.2% of their students chose to either walk, bike, scooter, skateboard, bus or carpooled to school! By participating in Way to Go Week the number of clean commuters at Waitsfield Elementary increased by 33% compared to an average school travel day.
Congratulations to our Runner-Up, Moretown Elementary School with 76.5% and our 2nd Runner Up, Edmunds Elementary School with 73.8% of students clean commuting!
The clean commuters at the thirteen participating Way to Go Schools collectively represented 1450 students who opted to arrive and depart by something other than their family car.
