Adult Award Winner in 1990
In 1988, 12 high school students of Laurel Springs School decided to make a video that would inspire children to help save their planet. Their video is "We Can Make a Difference?". The students wrote, filmed, edited, produced and raised all the money for the making of the video. Since receiving the Global 500 award in 1990, over 1 million children have seen "We Can Make a Difference".
The students of Laurel Springs School remain dedicated to their cause. They have made two more videos, "Making a Difference Around the World" and "One Small Wish for this Earth" and written two environmental workshops. This year the Laurel Springs students (ages 12-18) are performing their "Earth Hearing" workshops in schools around the country. They are also working on a fourth video.
