The BEC/CEC Student Film Fest won an award from the One Planet Schools Challenge program, sponsored by the San Mateo County Office of Education. The award includes a $500 payment to the Burlingame Environmental Club (BEC). BEC was surprised by the award, as they hadn’t applied for the recognition. It turns out that Jeffery Chen had nominated them!

Jeffery, a BEC founder and past president, has guided and mentored other BEC members in addition to his long list of personal achievements – he’s now a student at Princeton University.
