And the Spotlight 2018 recipient is...
After receiving dozens of nominations and hundreds of votes, the recipient of our One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight 2018 campaign is Ecology in Classrooms & Outdoors (ECO)!
ECO is a nonprofit that inspires elementary school students to connect to our natural world by providing hands-on ecology enrichment programs.
ECO is made up of educators and volunteers who work together to bring Ecology Programs to Portland Metro area schools. They share a passion for connecting students to the natural world, building science literacy and environmental awareness in the community we love!

Meet our past One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight Recipients:
2017 recipient: FACT OREGON
While at FACT Oregon, it was impossible not to feel how their passion for inclusivity powers every single thing that they do. From their person-centered planning process to the annual Tri4Youth All Ability Triathlon, we learned about all the ways FACT Oregon is supporting not only individuals experiencing a disability, but their families, educators, and community members as well.
2016 recipient: Sisters of the roaD
During production we felt the power of relationships between all those who visit, work, and volunteer with the organization. We learned how food justice is about so much more than access to healthy food and helped them communicate that to the public. Sisters of the Road continues to empower our community by giving them access to and ownership of their food systems.
