From the Archives: Earthcast 09-A Middle School student creates and sings her own original song #earthcast10 #earthday

"Here and Today" (recording on that link)

Liz, who is one of Sheila Adams' Middle School students from Rye Junior High in Rye, New Hampshire created this song and recorded it for sharing throughout Earthcast 09. I think you'll agree with me that it is a beautiful piece.

Thousands of schools in over 140 countries take part and aim to plant 100 million trees by 2017. Her father wrote a song for world forests and she submitted it to a song contest. The most voted song will be performed in Rio +20 Summit.
