Keep Stockwell Beautiful, Inc

The 2013 GAC Youth Award Winners, James Cole Elementary School in Stockwell, IN, take pride in their work. The fourth and fifth graders at James Cole walk to town twice a year to assist with cleanup, planting, litter patrol and help those unable to clean their yards. The Cole Cubs also won the Subaru of Indiana Environmental Steward Award in 2010. Since the inception of “Cole Kids’ Cleanup Stockwell, ” there have been 2757 bulbs planted, 782 bags of litter collected, 56 miles of road cleaned and over 600 students have participated. The “Cole Kids’ Cleanup Stockwell” is also recognized in Tippecanoe County School Corporation as a premier Service Learning Project. Not bad for a town of less than four square miles and a population of approximately 430. Thanks Cole Cubs and congratulations to all who have made this program a success!
