Brookfield resident and recent St. Mary School graduate Benediktas Bieliauskas was among students in grades seven through 12 who won awards at the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago’s Environmental Science Fair in June.

Certificates were presented to the winners by MWRD President Mariyana T. Spyropoulos.

Students presented their projects in front of their families, MWRD commissioners and staff. Afterwards, the winners and parents took a guided tour of the Chicago River, learning about the history and role of the waterways in managing storm water.
