Win some green to make a difference

Published on Written by Posted in Center for Green Schools
Need a little help with your Green Apple Day of Service project? We're giving away three Visa gift cards to help you transform your school into a healthy, safe, cost-efficient and productive learning space where students have clean and healthy air to breathe, and where energy and resources are conserved.

It's as simple as 1, 2, 3...

Step 1: Download the free Green Apple - Where we Learn Matters app on your iPhone or iPad
Step 2: Take a photo of yourself (or a friend!) outside/inside your school or a school in your neighborhood using the Green Apple app. 
Step 3: Share the photo to Facebook using the hashtag #greenapplecontest to be entered to win!

Photos will be judged by a panel of USGBC staff based on the quality of the photo and the photo's ability to show that “where we learn matters.” This can be displayed in a number of creative ways, highlighting either problems that exist within your learning space, or awesome green initiatives that your school is already doing. 

The best news? You've got three chances to win! We'll be giving out $50, $100, and $500 gift cards throughout the contest period, plus some cool Green Apple gear like water bottles and t-shirts. While you're snapping pictures, why not sign up for a Green Apple Day of Service project in your area, or create your own? Any project counts AND makes a difference, no matter the size.

You must be 18 or older to enter this contest. Ask a teacher, parent, or older student to enter with you! For more contest rules, click here.
