Two of our Baltimore City high school interns win Brower Youth Award!

Congratulations to Claire Wayner and Mercedes Thompson for winning the Brower Youth Award for 2017!

The Brower Youth Award is a prestigious national prize that recognizes outstanding young leaders in the environmental movement, and goes out to just six projects per year. Claire and Sadie, both current seniors at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, founded Baltimore Beyond Plastic while engaged in our Youth Environmental Internship program, focusing on getting Styrofoam replaced with products that are healthier and more sustainable.
