Project Green Schools is challenging schools across the country to develop and implement a meaningful outdoor classroom and learning space that awards one Grand Prize of $10,000 to further enhance an existing space or build a new space.

All U.S. based schools Pre-K – 12 are eligible to apply*.

Schools will submit a formal write-up, proposed budget, and design of their outdoor learning classroom/space.

Project Green Schools will invite the top five designs to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges in Spring 2022 to determine the $10,000 winner.

This challenge will honor, collaborate with, and recognize outstanding school groups in a virtual pitch event.
