2018 Drawdown EcoChallenge Winners - Sarah Duffer (center)

In Spring 2018, 512 students and staff from Asheville High won last year's Drawdown EcoChallenge. Their goal was to have every Environmental Science student on campus be able to identify, communicate and practice concrete actions that reverse global warming.

During the 3-week challenge, this team led by teacher Sarah Duffer traveled 2,892 miles by carpool, bike or bus, ate over 2,282 meatless, vegan, local or zero-waste meals, and saved over 7,000 pounds of CO2. They also contacted 782 public officials and spent over 568 hours learning about climate solutions.
