Thuy Le – 2005 High School Grand Prize Winner

The goal of Thuy’s project was to, “document practical means of energy conservation in my community.” She was motivated after completing a survey that determined her “ecological footprint.” She found that it would take nearly five planet earth’s to sustain the population if everyone lived they way she did. “Through these photos,” she states, “I hope people will realize that the environmentally friendly choice is often more attractive, practical and rewarding than the wasteful option.”
