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.”

    Had a great experience with Dan and Woodfield Lexis. Terms and options were laid out clearly and we quickly found the perfect car for my wife (Lexus RX350). They didn't have the color we wanted but a car was found quickly and Dan took extra time after the sale was made to show us how […]

    Such a pleasure buying a car from Woodfield Lexus. The sales team is amazing and never once did I feel pressured to buy anything. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful when deciding what car and options best suited my needs. I would highly recommend purchasing a vehicle here, as it was a very enjoyable experience

    I was greeted immediately with smiling faces on a very cold morning. I was disappointed the car wasn't washed but I understand it was very cold but it was so dirty.
