The 2014 Green Difference Awards

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.

Additionally, Student Ambassadors/STEMbassadors who have committed more than 20 hours of Environmental Education related service during the academic year are also honored on this day with Student Ambassador Certificates awarded by the Green Schools Organization.
