America’s Greenest School Contest

5 March 2009

Think your school is the “greenest” school in America? If you think your elementary, middle or high school is doing something seriously cool to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the world a better place to live, this is the contest for you! Sponsored by a hybrid school bus company, America’s Greenest School is looking for 500 word essays describing how your school is committed to sustainability, including any emphasis on green transportation or “how it embodies the spirit of a greener planet.”

Of course, it goes without saying that a great way to show how passionate your school is about sustainability is to mention your Minnesota Energy Challenge team and talk about the savings! You can find your school team on our website, not to mention the pounds of carbon dioxide pollution your team is promising to save.  Pretty cool numbers to show off…

Prizes include a hybrid bus for your school district, $3,000.00 in school supplies and a $5,000.00 scholarship.  If you have a green school, enter it!  Submissions are due by April 30th, 2009.
