2014-2015 Impact Report


What is the Green Schools Challenge?

MISSION: To educate Louisiana about the benefits of green building and environmental stewardship by participation in hands-on, experiential projects.

The Green Schools Challenge provides the following:

  • USGBC is the foremost authority on green building; we can provide mentors from our network of architects, engineers, and contractors to help schools implement successful projects, while students learn about career opportunities in sustainability.  We can help you take your green projects even further!
  • At the end of the school year, green projects showing the most impact will be given cash prizes & trophies by USGBC Louisiana. 
  • Teachers of winning teams will be given the opportunity to earn a Green Classroom Professional Certificate, with fees paid for by USGBC Louisiana.
