Finalists will be selected by online voting.

California Safe Schools (CSS) , is nationally & internationally recognized for spearheading the most stringent pesticide policy in nation at Los Angeles Unified School District (2nd largest). This policy called Integrated Pest Management Policy (IPM), uses low risk methods to eliminate pest & weeds. The policy was the first in the USA to embrace the Precautionary Principle & Right to Know about pesticides used on school campuses. Today it’s become the model for school districts & communities internationally.

October 6, 2005, Governor Schwarzenegger signed AB 405 (Montanez) sponsored by California Safe Schools. This law closes a loophole protecting more than 6 million California K-12 public school students, & hundreds of thousands of teachers & school employees from exposure to experimental pesticides whose health effects are unknown. Since founding CSS, Suwol produces innovative environmental health events for students & public,& makes frequent presentations on all areas of health & safety to school officials, legislators & regulatory agencies.
