The celebrated honor recognizes schools, districts and institutions of higher education that demonstrate excellence across three pillars: 1) minimizing environmental impacts and costs; 2) improving student and teacher health and well-being; and 3) ensuring that every student graduates with an understanding of sustainability and the requisite skills to excel in the 21st century.
For any school that wishes to make progress towards sustainability goals, www.greenstrides.org, a collaboration between the USGBC's Center for Green Schools and the U.S. Department of Education, provides the largest repository of free resources to advance green schools.
