Louisiana Green Schools Challenge

The 2019-2020 Green Schools Challenge and poster contest is open!

What is the Green Schools Challenge? 

This is a yearly competition in which we encourage schools to undertake green project to make their school and/or communities a healthier place to live, learn, and grow.

The projects include raising awareness of environmental stewardship, reducing waste, energy and/or water use, or creating healthier spaces within your school.

There is no cost to compete and we encourage for projects to be low or no-cost projects. The projects that show the most impact per category; Elementary, Middle and High School, will win cash and prizes.

This program is designed to educate Louisiana about the benefits of green building and environmental stewardship by participation in hands-on, experiential projects.
