Do you know a school deserving of a green makeover? Are you a teacher who’s frustrated with the antiquated energy practices used at your school? Or are you a concerned parent who wants a healthier environment for your child?
Then enter your school into the Global Green USA’s Green School Makeover Competition! From now until September 30, 2011, enter your school for a chance to win a “green school” makeover.
One grand prize winner will be selected and four additional schools will each receive $2,500 towards their green school renovations. These renovations could include a building a compost yard, insect garden or biology pond, using green cleaning supplies/energy-efficient lightbulbs, starting a recycling program, or teaching the children about sustainable living.
So why are green schools so important? Because every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, healthy, free of harmful toxins and optimal for learning, but in most schools unfortunately, that simply isn’t the case. The most disturbing fact is sometimes, schools spend more on energy than on books and computers.
So enter your favorite school today!
