The Collaborative awarded the 3rd annual "Out of School Time Champion Award" to Stratton Mountain Resort. Stratton was selected for their leadership role in Refuse to Use Program. Middle school students presented the award to Michael Cobb, vice president of marketing at Stratton.
Since 2002, Stratton has partnered with The Collaborative to offer healthy, substance free recreational activities to support substance free youth. On average, 400 students in grades seventh through 12 from Burr and Burton Academy, Flood Brook Union School, Long Trail School, Manchester Elementary Middle School, Maple Street School, and Dorset School take a pledge to stay alcohol, drug, and tobacco free and attend five out of school time substance use prevention education workshops. Those students may select a season pass to Stratton Mountain.
