Orland student wins Earth Day contest
ATP, a manufacturer of the world's first recyclable, eco-friendly USB flash drive called the EarthDrive, hosted a "EarthDrive for Earth Day 2008" contest. Students around the nation were asked to tell the company how they contribute to their environment.
Ryan Klein of Orland Park was selected as a runner-up. For his winning essay (which can be viewed at www.opprairie.com), Klein received a 2GB EarthDrive.
"This means that he's also making contribution toward American Forests' Global Releaf Program, nationwide tree-planting projects due to the nature of our partnership with the organization," said the company in a statement. "We were very pleased to see Ryan's passion about saving the environment as we were excited to see how many students in Chicago are actively doing things to protect the environment."
