Pearl School Award Program
The Pearl School Award Program is one of our largest partnership programs. Through this program over 100 schools have been recognized and rewarded for excellence in environmental education, stewardship and sustainability.

Over the years, LRNow has developed unique programs to expand our partnerships beyond the schools, connecting the schools with local businesses, government agencies and other non-profits. These have included our 15th Anniversary Quilt Project and Award Winning Lynnhaven Trashion Show.
