John Davis

Another round of Biodiesel Backer Awards will be handed out by the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association to four K-12 Iowa schools at the 47th Annual School Transportation Conference and Trade Show in Des Moines on July 20. The $2,500 grants will go to Iowa schools that promote biodiesel:

“Fueling school buses with clean, renewable biodiesel is a key component of student health and school transportation safety,” said IRFA Biofuels Manager Grant Menke. “That makes an event focused on the safe transportation of students to and from school a natural place to present Biodiesel Backer Awards. IRFA wholeheartedly thanks the Iowa Pupil Transportation Association for inviting us back to participate in this important event.”

Applications are due to IRFA by May 28th. More information is available at the IRFA’s Web site.
