Earth Calendar for January 11th and January 12th
The 2nd “Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition” gives K-12 schools across America the chance to enter to win a green makeover, as well as prizes towards sustainability upgrades for runner-ups.
Global Green USA has been greening schools for more than a decade. They believe every child deserves a healthy learning environment. The competition provides an opportunity to make schools greener, which has been shown to improve student performance, increase average daily attendance, and reduce operating costs, energy and water consumption. The competition will award one grand prize winning school $75,000 in cash and $65,000 worth of technical assistance to fund their proposed green projects. The top 10 schools will receive Office Depot Gift Cards ranging from $1,000-$5,000. Parents, teachers, and students are encouraged to enter their school over the next few months. More information and the entry form can be found on the Global Green website at the website.
