This family event is organized by the CHS Environmental Action Club. The purpose is to educate the public on how to go green at home while also raising awareness about local, national, and global environmental issues.
  • Booths will include Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Spring Green Garden Club, Earth Charter Indiana, CCS Green Team, Carmel Green Initiative, and Clay Township Regional Waste District, Carmel Green Teens, and the University High School Ecoblazers, as well as giveaways from Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation and Carmel Household Hazardous Waste Disposal.
  • For entertainment, guests will enjoy Jim Poyser, a renowned speaker from Earth Charter Indiana and youth speakers from Poyser’s organization Youth Power Indiana, as well as talents from CHS students. There will be a variety of singers including Mimi Carnes (sophomore), Emily Worrell (freshman), and Joseph Bloom (sophomore). There will also be a juggler (Vince Carter, senior), and an art display. All of our volunteers are students, as well.
  • Kids activities will include carnival-style games with an environmental twist such as: face-painting featuring  recycling symbols, earths, etc.; guess-how-many jelly beans are in the jar (hint: it's the same number as the tons of trash produced every month in Carmel); recycling toss (test your three-point skills by tossing recyclables into a bin "hoop"), and more!
  • There will also be tours of the Plots to Plates community garden and fresh food from local Carmel Farmer's Market vendors.

Congrats to CHS student Andrew Glesing winner of the Earth Fair logo art contest!
