CA Green Ribbon Schools Recognition Program 2022
Does your school offer an exceptional model for whole-school sustainability, including healthy food and nutrition, health and wellness, and school gardens? If so, then consider applying for the California Green Ribbon Schools (CA-GRS) recognition program.
The purpose of this program is to honor excellence in whole-school sustainability while spotlighting replicable best practices.
Eligible award recipients include school districts, county offices of education, kindergarten through grade twelve public and private schools, and early education centers. Participation in the CA-GRS recognition program is optional.
Interested parties can complete a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools application interest survey.
The deadline to submit completed applications for School Year 2022–23 is at 12:00 P.M. (noon) PST on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.
Each awardee will receive recognition on the California Department of Education website and a CA-GRS plaque. Five honorees will earn a nomination for additional recognition by the Secretary of Education as U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools and District Sustainability Award winners.
