Rohan Chalasani Honored at White House with Environmental Award

Indian American teen Rohan Chalasani was honored with 62 other students and 18 teachers at the White House for their contributions to environmental education and stewardship, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said.

The 2015 winners and honorable mentions for the annual President's Environmental Youth Award and the 2015-2016 Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators were honored for their work.

The PIAEE awards recognize innovative environmental educators who integrate environmental learning into their classrooms using hands-on, experiential approaches. The PEYA awards recognize outstanding environmental stewardship projects by K-12 youth.

Chalasani, a junior at Fox Chapel High School in Pittsburgh, was an EPA Region 3 winner for his impact of energy consumption reduction on household carbon footprints. More information about Chalasani’s project was not immediately available.
