BOSTON - The Boston Bruins and the Boston Bruins Foundation announced today the launch of their Green Up New England Challenge in partnership with Project Green Schools and Walmart. This new initiative aims to develop Green Student Leaders in schools throughout New England.
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.
To participate in the challenge, schools will be asked to complete an online application by March 22, 2017. Apply here.
A team of judges will measure submitted applications on the following: 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.
To enter this challenge, administrators, teachers, and students can fill out the entry form on projectgreenschools.org. For questions regarding the Green Up New England Challenge, contact Project Green Schools at:firstname.lastname@example.org or call (508) 272-9653.
