The Lexus Eco Challenge, sponsored by Scholastic, saw two area teams who qualified for the national finals in the Air & Climate Change Challenge.  The team from Jericho, 'Methane X,' studied the impact of methane and presented research about the benefits of composting.  Team 'ELLI' (Eat Local Long Island), from Locust Valley sought to educate their community about reducing their carbon footprint, in part by taking a food-to-table approach in the school's cafeteria and at local restaurants.
