1st Class of NGSS [National Green Schools Society] Graduates-2013
National Green Schools Society honors and develops bright, civic-minded, environmentally literate citizens in schools and communities. Students in grades 5-8 and 9-12 develop their passion for preserving the environment, while improving schools and communities through environmental service, leadership, and activism.
This year, NGSS graduated students from public, private, charter schools, and home schools from across the nation and we couldn’t be more proud of their accomplishments and service!
The Green Difference Awards both honor and empower Environmental Excellence, Innovation, and Stewardship led in our Schools & Communities.
Schools, Administrators, Students, Clubs, Organizations, and Outstanding Environmental Leaders of all ages from across the nation are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the Green Schools Movement.
Since 2007, the Green Schools Organization has inspired and recognized Best Practices and Excellence in our hundreds of Schools & Communities. This recognition program allows environmental leaders to not only be recognized for their efforts, but also to share exemplar models and initiatives in hopes of sparking The Green Difference in others.
Green Difference Award Winners have gone on to do great things like develop programs, courses, author books, generate funding, and change the world.
“We get to see incredible work led in our schools and communities every day. The Green Difference Awards Program allows us to share awesomeness, inspire others, and share critical environmental solutions each year,” said Robin Organ, Green Schools Executive Director and Founder.
