New York State Encourages Schools to Go Green

Is your school community making an effort to “Go Green”?   If so, your school could now receive national recognition for its efforts!! 

 

The New York State education department is encouraging private and public schools to apply for the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools program.  This program highlights schools where staff, students, officials, and communities are working together to “Go Green”.  Applicant school’s will have to provide evidence on their efforts to save energy, reduce costs, foster health and wellness, foster environmentally sustainable learning spaces, and offer environmental education. 

 Winning schools will be recognized at an annual ceremony.  Applications must be submitted online on or before February 24, 2012.  To learn more about this program visit the New York State Green Ribbon Schools Website.
