Utah Green Schools 2021-22 Applications Now Open!

USEE is happy to announce that the 2021-2022 Green Schools Application is now open! 

Green School’s got a makeover this year and is easier than ever to apply for. The application consists of an intent to apply form, a 47 question multiple choice survey, and a 3-page open answer narrative form so that you can elaborate on the great things your school is doing. The question of the multiple-choice survey are on our Green School’s page so that you can easily view them before beginning the official application. 

Becoming a Utah Green School allows your school to be recognized for things you are likely already doing such as using low flush toilets, providing outdoor time for students, and testing for lead. It allows your school to align with the recent sustainability initiative set by Salt Lake and Park City School Districts. 

Utah Green Schools is also an excellent professional development opportunity. We will be putting together Green School-specific webinars that will discuss topics such as EE and student health and Waste and recycling. There will also be open help sessions where applicants may get help with the application process, get questions answered, or network with other applicants from across Utah. These dates will be released soon! 

Finally, if you are interested in learning how to integrate Environmental Education during the wintertime I encourage you to sign up for our Discover the Winter Wonderland of Environmental Education workshop!
