Social Science Research student senior Hafsah Khan won first place in the WISE Quality of Life Competition for her research project, “Reducing Food Waste in NYC Public Schools through the Implementation of Composting Programs.”

Through the Saving Planet Earth Club, Hafsah will begin a pilot composting program that will ultimately expand to other high schools in the city.

Through the program, she hopes to reduce the amount of food waste that makes up landfills. This will help reduce the production of methane that is harmful to both the environment and humans.

          In addition to winning first place for THHS, two seniors, Christopher E, Radhika Patel and Jessy Chen, became semi-finalists in the Quality of Life Competition. Radhika Patel and Jessy Chen received Borough Leaders awards that were signed by the Borough President, Melinda Katz.
