We are pleased to announce the winners of the national "Green Your School" contest!
The contest, which launched last spring, challenged eco-conscious high schoolers to submit their school's best green-related projects. After reaching out to hundreds of thousands of classrooms nationwide, a panel of distinguished judges, including NBC News' Anne Thompson and environmentalist Simran Sethi, selected West Geauga High School in Chesterland, Ohio as the grand prize winner of $5,000. Two runner-up prizes
of $2,500 were also awarded to Boston Latin School in Boston, Mass. and Amphitheater High School in
The "Green Your School" contest engaged students in conservation projects that improved, restored, or beautified their school's environment. To be eligible, entries had to be student-led and have been started after August 1, 2008. Projects were judged on their environmental impact on the health of the school, sustainability, and the involvement of other students, teachers, administrators and/or the outside community.
View all the submissions and be inspired to embark on your own green-related project.
