Opportunity for USA state, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands education authorities to nominate their state's PreK-12 schools and universities for national recognition for their environmental programs and activities that benefit and educate students and have a positive impact on the environment. The honorees are invited to attend a national ceremony in July where they receive a sustainable plaque and flag.

Specifically, the award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools, districts, and post-secondary institutions that are exemplary in three Pillars:

1) Reducing environmental impact and costs, including waste, water, energy use and alternative transportation;

2) Improving the health and wellness of students and staff, including environmental health, nutrition and fitness; and

3) Providing effective sustainability education, including robust environmental education that engages STEM, civic skills and green career pathways.

The award is a tool to encourage state education agencies, stakeholders and higher education officials to consider matters of facilities, health and environment comprehensively and in coordination with state health, environment and energy agency counterparts. Unique about the award is that, in order to be selected for federal recognition, schools, districts and postsecondary institutions must be high achieving in all three of the above Pillars, not just one area.

For all award categories, authorities are strongly encouraged to work with other state agencies, non-profit partners, and associations to ensure appropriate expertise and outreach to eligible candidates. For post-secondary nominees, State Selection Committees should include input from the governor’s office, post-secondary offices, and/or associations of higher education, as appropriate.
