And any feedback would be awesome.Common App Short AnswerIn the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your activities (extracurricular, personal activities, or work experience) (150 words or fewer)I have been a member of Green Team for 3 years. We focus on improving the environment as well as educating the community around us about environmental issues and beneficial changes to make in their own lives. I partake in a variety of activities, including the writing of grant proposals and making blankets for the homeless from recycled fabrics. We clean the lakes around Southwest and built walls for a house with Habitat for Humanity. Our members go on trips to educate ourselves about alternative energy, visiting locations like the St. Olaf Wind Turbine and Excel Energy Riverside Plant, and present the information we've learned in workshop. As a part of our mercury workshop, I arranged for Clancy, the country's only mercury detecting dog, to attend. I have learned the power of teaching and how to protect our planet for the future. This year our team received a Student Service Award from the Minnesota Legislature.
