2012 Lexus Eco Challenge: Second Round Winners Announced

February 22, 2012 Featured No Comments

The 2012 Lexus Eco Challenge has announced its second round winners. Sixteen student teams from eleven states have made the cut. Winning teams represent a variety of states from New York to Florida, making their local Lexus dealers proud. Included in the group of winners is “Mother Nature’s Minions,” a team from Bartlett High School. Woodfield Lexus extends their congratulations to this local team.

All of the second round winners, including “Mother Nature’s Minions,” have earned $10,000 in scholarships and grants to be divided among students, teacher, and school. In addition, these sixteen teams will compete in the Final Challenge for one of two $30,000 grand prizes and eight $15,000 first-place awards.

For each challenge, teams are required to define an environmental issue of importance, develop an action plan addressing this issue, implement the plan, and report the results. For example, “Mother Nature’s Minions” implemented a TerraCycle program at schools to address fossil fuel usage to complete the second round of the competition.

In its fifth year, the annual Lexus Eco Challenge educates students about the environment through a friendly competition. Lexus pairs up with Scholastic to challenge students to learn about their environment and think of ways to improve it.

Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager, believes the competition allows students “the opportunity to show their capabilities to others, as well as discover their own potential to improve the environment around them.”

    Gerson delivers accurate explanation of the action plan and pays attention to details. He is personable and treat each customer with respect. It's good to return to lexus woodfield for service when Gerson is around.

    I dread taking my car to the dealership, as all my recent experience with BMW service in Naperville, and Barrington has necessitated a few return trips to correct their mistakes. Brake slider covers forgot after brake job, battery cover clips missing after battery replacement, oil change interval not reset after oil change, and most recently, […]

    On 11/18/2015 I called the dealership and discussed a used car shown online with Mark Demma. Mark was to the point, professional and very gregarious. This pleasant experience led to me visiting the dealership with my wife. The car was ready for us out front before we got there. There extensive selection was beautiful and […]

    Couldn't ask for better service. My first service visit was handled professionally and quickly. I hardly finished my cup of coffee! I hope future visits are as enjoyable

    Woodfield Lexus is truly an excellent dealership. Thank you Pat for making my last two leases so easy and hassle free. I wouldn't think about going anywhere else.
