The Boston Bruins and the Boston Bruins Foundation have partnered with Project Green Schools and Walmart for the Green Up New England Challenge, which aims to develop Green Student Leaders in schools throughout New England. To become a Green Student Leader and participate in the challenge, administrators, teachers, and students can fill out the entry form on projectgreenschools.org by March 22, 2017. Schools across New England that enter the challenge will be asked to compete in energy reduction, waste reduction, water reduction, best green school practices, best green community practices, and best green sports practices. Awards will be given for each category. A team of judges will measure submitted applications on overall concept, environmental impact, creativity, number of participants engaged, and how effective schools were at getting the message out.
One grand prize winning school will receive a classroom/sustainability lab makeover from the Boston Bruins and Walmart next fall. Honorees will be announced on March 28 and will be recognized at the Bruins game on April 1 vs. the Florida Panthers at TD Garden.
