Student Conservation Association
The Associationís Green Your School Contest is a national competition to stimulate and/or identify conservation service projects designed by high school students that improve, restore, beautify, or conserve their high school environment. To be eligible, projects must have been begun after August 1, 2008. Entries must be completed by a student and will be judged according to the following criteria: the project has or will improve the environmental health of the school; the project is sustainable; the project is student-initiated and engages other students, teachers, and school administrators; the submission itself is of high quality; and the project engaged the community. There will be one grand prize of $5,000 and two runners-up prizes of $2,500 each. Prizes will be awarded directly to high schools and not to individuals. Applications must be submitted online. Schools without Internet access can request a paper registration form. Additional information is available on the Web site.
