Creal Springs School Day in Illinois

Today will be known as Creal Springs School Day in Illinois.

Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will issue a proclamation today during a meeting of the Mississippi River Coordinating Council. The proclamation recognizes the achievements of the Creal Springs students.

Those students ended up winning the $20, 000 grand prize in the Disney Planet Challenge back in May. The students spent the past two years working on conservation projects in the Cache River wetlands. By the way, Simon chairs the Mississippi River Coordinating Council which promotes the ecological health of the river and its tributaries.
