Special honors for the Philadelphia school district Thursday, for its commitment to protecting the environment while improving the health and wellness of its students.

At a news conference in west Philadelphia the school district was given a "green ribbon award" by the U.S. Department of Education.

Only 9 school districts across the country receive a green ribbon.

One reason Philadelphia was chosen, was for its many school playgrounds that now incorporate green space and gardens for students.
