Caring for Kenai Unveiled Thursday

This Thursday, the 12 Caring For the Kenai finalists will be revealed and $28,000 in cash prizes will be awarded as students present their ideas to local judges. The students and their projects haven’t yet been unveiled, but Program Coordinator Merrill Sikorski says he’s excited by what he’s seen…

 

Sikorski: “Every year, the uniqueness of the ideas, I mean pretty soon you would think, ‘What more can you do for recycling or to prevent moose kill or to get solid waste or to habitat restoration,’ and yet we have things this year that literally I have not seen in 23 years. It’s really exciting what these kids come up with.”

 

The CFK finalists are competing for over $8,000 in prizes, plus $20,000 in cash grants for their schools. The final presentation is open to the public  this Thursday, 6pm at the KCHS Little Theatre, or you can watch it online at that time by visiting: Caring for the Kenai.
