Environmental Scholarships and Awards The Middleton Stream Team is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. Our mission is to promote, conserve, protect, improve and expand the natural, scenic and historical resources and recreational opportunities as well as to foster the responsible use and enjoyment of these resources by the public. To further its mission, the Middleton Stream Team recognizes the need to protect the environment for future generations so it has established a yearly fund used to award an outstanding Middleton high school senior who has demonstrated an interest in protecting the environment now and for the future. 100% of the award money donated goes directly to the student for educational purposes in helping them reach their goals.
