The Green Your School Challenge is a student led movement to shrink the carbon footprint of US schools. Teens rally their school community and lead projects to reduce waste, save energy, promote green agriculture and more. Participating students browse and select projects needed in their school and we provide action guides and one-on-one support to help.
Schools that make the biggest impact on their school win grants and prizes including:
- A $5000 grant to the biggest impact on recycling, powered by Nestlé Waters.
- A $5000 grant to the biggest impact on energy conservation, powered by Energy Star.
- Five $1000 grants to the schools with the most people registered.
DoSomething.org will also award 4 $500 college scholarships to individuals who register as participants in the campaign by March 1st.
