Two brothers who are students in the Lower Merion School District are featured in Chelsea Clinton's book "Start Now! You Can Make A Difference."

Roldan and Devin, who are students at Lower Merion High School and Bala Cynwyd Middle School, are featured for their environmental efforts.

When the brothers noticed an increased number of mosquitos in their neighborhood, they attributed it the number of tadpoles that were killed when a local swimming pool was drained, causing the tadpoles to lose their habitat.

The brothers collected the tadpoles, took care of them until they grew into frogs and then released them. The increased number of frogs then ate an increased number of mosquitos and lessened the itchy and scratchy problem in their neighborhood.

The brothers won an award from the Environmental Protection Agency for their efforts.
