Rayna Schinhofen earns 2018 Silver Award


The town of Brunswick has very few options for composing, and the Curtis Memorial Library was spending tons of money to take away waste, like coffee grounds, that could serve a better purpose. Rayna saw her chance to make a difference, and decided to design a composting system for the library to use!

Now, instead of things just going into the trash, Rayna’s composting system allows for biodegradable items to be disposed of in a more environmentally-friendly way.

Rayna says she was so excited to be a part of something big, and that her greatest success was being able to share about her project with the community.
