There's Still Time to Apply to the Greenest School in Canada Contest

Do you have what it takes?

Greenest School in Canada isn't all about infrastructure. Instead, we are looking for schools that weave sustainability education into their curriculum, with programs and activities that encourage awareness of the environment. The competition is open to Canadian schools that offer any grade from kindergarten to grade 12. Entrants will be judged on criteria that includes efficient use of resources and reduced environmental impact; enhanced health and learning among students, teachers and staff; and emphasis on sustainability and resource-conservation education.

The winning school will receive $2,000 in prize money for a green activity of their choosing, as well as the coveted title of "Greenest School in Canada."

All school's entering the competition will receive access to Arc, a platform that can help schools better understand their energy, water and waste consumption. Using Arc, teachers and administrators have access to environmental learning tools that can deepen students understanding with real world experiences gained by collecting and analyzing energy data. This type of learning builds valuable science, technology, engineering and math skills, helping prepare students for 21st century careers in the low-carbon economy.
