My Green School Plan Challenge

This fall, K-12 youth teams in the capital region were challenged to design My Green School Plans to reduce their school’s eco-footprint, raise student awareness and/or change behaviour.

We are pleased to announce that three teams were awarded funds to turn their plans into action.
