WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Education has bestowed its "green ribbon" designation on two Missouri schools for their efforts to reduce waste.

The department said in a release Monday that the schools are Crossroads College Preparatory School and The College School, both in St. Louis.

The agency began the Green Ribbon Schools program last year. It honors schools that use a comprehensive approach to sustainability by cutting utility costs and providing healthy learning environments.

The Missouri schools given the one-year designation were among 78 schools awarded nationwide.
