Keep it Clean, Sort it Out
Autumn is a Cadette and for her Gold Award project she created the slogan “Keep it clean, Sort it out” and led a team to paint the slogan on every receptacle at Aloha Stadium. She also created 5000 flyers that were handed out at the Aloha Stadium’s swap meets. Autumn joined NOAA’s Ocean Fest where she hosted a booth to educate the community on proper recycling and the dangers of putting hazards in recycling bins. She participated in the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam Environmental Health Group’s Earth Day Fair teaching proper recycling habits to the military community. Autumn also made a PSA to be shown on the Aloha Stadium’s jumbotron  and had Jack Johnson, Environment Activist  and a few of the University of Hawaii football players and cheerleaders to have cameos in her PSA to help spread her message.
