Green Ribbon Schools Applications Now Open

The Louisiana Green Schools is proud to announce the opening of applications for the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School Program. ED-GRS is a national award that honors schools and school districts that have made significant progress in resource conservation, improving community health, and increasing environmental awareness.  Participation in the program helps to reduce your school’s environmental impact, reduce health disparities that can aggravate achievement gaps, and engage students in hands-on learning.   Please visit Louisiana’s ED-GRS application portal to begin an application and for more info.  Applications are due on January 14th by 5:00 p.m.
