Is your school looking for a little extra cash? These days, what school isn't? But if you think your school could use that extra cash to put towards eco-savvy improvements, I've got a contest for you.
Global Green USA is looking to give away $65,000 in school renovations to one lucky grand prize-winning school. That school will also receive an additional $65,000 worth of technical assistance. Four runner-up schools will get $2,500 to use towards green school renovations.
What can your school do with the money? There are lots of possibilities, including putting in a school garden, improving energy and water conservation features, upgrading energy indoor environmental quality, or even installing a green roof. To enter, think about the eco-improvements that would work best at your school. Be sure to gather photos or even a short video about your potential project, including how and why a green school makeover would be good for the planet and your school.
