2017-18 Green Schools Quest - School Registration Form (Due Sept 15, 2017)
Thanks for your interest in participating in the Green Schools Quest: A Project-Based Challenge!

JOIN THE GREEN SCHOOLS QUEST
School registration forms are due September 15, 2017, 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.

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.

OVERVIEW
The U.S. Green Building Council - Missouri Gateway Chapter (USGBC-MGC) challenges your school to form a team to green your school which can result in lower operating costs and will positively impact your students, teachers and community forever. Our goal is to empower students and communities to be good stewards of their own environments. To assist the Green Teams, a USGBC-MGC Green Mentor will be assigned to each school Green Team to help with ideas, documentation, and resources.

PROJECTS
The Green Team will select a low or no cost project to begin October 2017 and conclude on March 11, 2018. For this initiative, low cost is defined as $250 or less contributed by the school; schools are welcomed to pursue additional resources such as donated products/services or grants if they wish; no funding will be provided by USGBC-MGC.

Projects must be NEW or MAJOR EXTENSIONS of existing initiatives at each school.

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 11, 2018.

RECOGNITION
Cash Awards ($600 for first place, $400 for second place, $200 for third place) and trophies will be presented to three participants in each category: elementary school, middle/junior high school (6-8 grade) and high school. NEW in 2017-18: Five additional awards will be presented across the categories: Rookie of the Year (new to the GSQ), Sustainability Champion (3 or more years of GSQ participation), Focus of the Year (2017-18 Focus is Community Engagement), Judges' Choice, and Innovation. Winners of the five NEW awards will receive $100. Winners will be announced at the 11th Annual Green Schools Event taking place on April 10, 2018 from 5:30-7:30 pm (Mark your calendars!). The USGBC-MGC Green Schools Committee will present awards to winning teams at their schools or school board meetings in May 2018.
