Lawrence Township Public Schools received the 2018 Ralph Copleman Environmental Award last month from the Lawrence Township Growth and Redevelopment Committee at the Cobblestone Creek Country Club.

The committee presented the honor in recognition of the district’s work with Sustainable Jersey for Schools (SJS).

All seven LTPS schools have earned Bronze certification from SJS. Additionally, LTPS was the only New Jersey entity to receive the 2017 Sustainability Makes $ense Award for the district’s solar program.

Annually, the Lawrence Township Growth and Redevelopment Committee, in conjunction with the MidJersey Chamber of Commerce, conducts an awards program. The awards are presented in eight categories to businesses, individuals, and civic groups that have enhanced the community in a special way.
