U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Applications

Wisconsin participates in the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools program. Schools, districts, and early learning centers seeking nomination must submit an online application by December 1 each year. Applications are reviewed each winter, and winners are announced close to Earth Day each spring.

The award recognizes schools, districts, early learning centers, and IHEs* that:

· Reduce environmental impact and costs;

· Improve the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff; and

· Provide effective environmental and sustainability education.

The online application is the same one used for Green & Healthy Schools Wisconsin. The application can be completed over time and not all questions need to be answered.

For questions, contact Victoria Rydberg, DPI Environmental Education Consultant at (608) 266-0419.
