School registration forms are due September 15, 2019, 11:59 PM CST. Submit your registration by completing the form below. Green Teams may be a single classroom, a grade level, an entire school or a student club. One registration form is allowed per school. Districts are encouraged to submit separate registration forms for each individual school that is interested in participating as judging will take place in three categories: Elementary, Middle (6-8 grade), and High.
Schools are NOT required to identify a specific project to work on in order to register, though the registration form provides the opportunity to include a project description. Project descriptions assist USGBC-MGC in matching your project with the appropriate Green Mentor. If you do not have a specific project in mind that is NO PROBLEM - simply identify 2 areas of interest and indicate 'to be determined' on questions seeking project details. Once the Green Schools Quest is underway, schools may engage in projects that stray from the ideas shared on their registration form.
While USGBC-MGC will make every effort to match a mentor with each school registrant, the number of school/mentor pairings will be contingent upon the number of mentors available.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
The Green Schools Quest is part of Green Apple Day of Service, a global initiative spearheaded by USGBC's Center for Green Schools. Check out www.mygreenapple.org for more information about Green Apple Day of Service.
Projects must be NEW or MAJOR EXTENSIONS of existing initiatives at each school. Schools may not submit the same project multiple years.
A sample list of 101+ Ways to Green Your School is available at www.usgbc-mogateway.org/green-school-quest/. The Green Team will document their impact, such as energy or resource savings, during the project. Each Green Team will submit their project’s process and impact for judging by an impartial panel by March 15, 2020.
