Green Schools Recognition Program

The recognition program engages staff, students, administrators, custodians, and families by encouraging them to complete activities that reduce the environmental impact of their school. The program is based on the number of points earned by each school and recognizes schools for various levels of achievement. These activities are generally designed to be carried out or directed by the school Green Team, but anyone is welcome to participate!

1. Complete Activities
Earn points for each sustainability-related activity completed. Check to see if activities you're already doing are eligible for points!

Getting Started

Teachers, staff, students, and family members are all welcome to earn points for their school!

We know schools can be a big place to coordinate these efforts across departments and groups within the building, so we recommend putting together a Green Team to be the champion group of this program.

All principals designate a Sustainability Champion for their school, and they are a great point of contact for creating or joining a Green Team.

The deadline to submit all 2023-24 activities is Monday, May 6th
