Ace Amazing Race – first place in NY, NJ and DC!!

“Student members of the ACE Action team at Alfred E. Smith High School in the Bronx won the Amazing ACE Race competition in the NY/NJ/DC region with 9 star points! They earned points by completing some pretty amazing carbon-reducing projects: a green roof with the help of Sustainable South Bronx, school composting, and last but not least the bamboo bike project depicted in this video.”  To read more, click here
