The school was chosen by the Foundation after teachers and students participated in a series of events including creating fundraising initiatives to Everglades-focused field trips and projects; encouraging Everglades-focused research for science fairs and participating in local, state and national green schools programs.

The Foundation reviewed the evaluation criteria of Everglades Champion Schools Recognition program for Miami Lakes K-8 Center, which reflects the goal of the Foundation of creating plans to save the Everglades and protect the county’s supply of drinking water for future generations.
