Join us at the 16th Annual Green Schools Event to celebrate student-driven sustainability projects in local schools!
This free event, which is open to the public, is the culmination of the 2022-2023 Green Schools Quest – a project-based challenge to K-12 schools to implement a sustainability project over 6 months with the help of a Green Mentor. Over 50 school/mentor teams are participating this school year.
Winners will be announced at the event and participating schools will display posters detailing their projects. Several student participants will take the stage for Q&A with the emcee so that they may share their experiences and perspectives on the impact of their projects.
And, attendees will find out how they can participate in the 2023-2024 Green Schools Quest, as schools or mentors.
