SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah student took home an award for her work to improve the environment.
West High School's Sarah Nagley just won the Igniting Creative Energy Challenge for inventing shoes that remind people about their carbon footprint.
"I made flip-flops where when you walk in the sand, it leaves a message. I put ‘reduce your carbon footprint' on it so that when you walk in water then sand, it leaves a message behind," Nagley explained.
Her idea was chosen over those of 1,500 other students. She took home $1,000 and a portable electronics charger for her effort.
