KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This week was National Green Week at Sprint, which is ranked No. 3 on Newsweek’s Green Rankings and all week long, Sprint held an educational series to teach fifth graders in Kansas City, Kan. and Kansas City, Mo. about ‘green energy.’

Fifth-graders from George Washington Carver Dual Language School at 46th and Elmwood applied the energy-saving lessons to their hallway lights.

They learned how to reduce energy by auditing the use of lights in the hallway and also developed board games about energy to see where they could save.

Sprint hoped to teach these young people that simple changes in behavior can have a collective impact on the environment, the economy, and society.
