For the past five years, the Center for Green Schools at USGBC has honored leading organizations, individuals and institutions through our annual Best of Green Schools Award. Since 2012, the center has presented this award to highlight national leaders and innovators in school sustainability. Honorees are announced at the annual Green Schools Conference and Expo.
Past award categories have included: K–12 School, School System, Higher Education Institution, Policy Maker, Collaboration, Transformation, Student Leadership and Moment for the Movement.
Look for our call for nominations for 2017’s Best of Green Schools in early February, with the winners being announced in March in Atlanta at the Green Schools Conference and Expo.
