NASHVILLE (AP) — State Rep. Brenda Gilmore is being recognized nationally for her environmental efforts in schools.

The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council announced this week that the Nashville Democrat is one of the 2014 "Best of Green Schools" recipients.

The award recognizes 10 individuals, institutions, projects and events representing the best environmental efforts in schools across the country.

Gilmore is being recognized in the policy maker category.

During the last legislative session, Gilmore championed legislation that encourages school districts to utilize less toxic products and schedule all cleaning and maintenance at times that limit student and staff exposure to possibly harmful chemicals.
