The Center for Green Schools at the USGBC is once again partnering with the Green Schools National Network to co-present the Best of Green Schools 2017. The Best of Green Schools is designed to acknowledge the people, schools, campuses, and organizations that are making a huge difference in creating more green schools for students.
Best of Green Schools celebrates the hard work being done to push the green schools movement forward. Last year’s honorees included schools with innovative and integrated curriculum that represents the best that 21st-century learning has to offer, policy makers who’ve made environmental sustainability core to their platforms and legacies and organizations that came together on the national level to advance healthy schools for all.
If you or someone you know is making significant strides toward creating more sustainable schools, we want to hear from you! You may submit nominations for yourself and others. The call for nominations closes on Feb. 14, 2017.
Award recipients will be announced at the 2017 Green Schools Conference and Expo, March 21–22 in Atlanta, Georgia. This annual gathering of innovators in the green schools movement is the perfect moment to celebrate the leadership embodied by the awardees. After you submit your nomination, register to attend the conference so you’ll be on hand in Atlanta for the awards.
