This updated program will reward schools for sustainable and health behaviors that can be accomplished by any school, regardless of the building's age or when it was last renovated.
We set out to level the playing field for schools to earn funds by demonstrating a committment to improving sustainability. Go Green + Earn Green 2.0 allows schools to earn funds for green and healthy behavior. The Go Green + Earn Green calendar will be divided into three, two-month periods from October through March. Reward funds will be transferred soon after the end of those periods.
Upon submission, each school will earn $40 for each Green Culture achievement:
- Is your school attempting to recycle?
- Does your school's student team perform monthly energy patrols?
- Are break shutdown checklists being disseminated to school staff before long breaks (Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring)?
- Are classrooms encouraged to turn the lights off when everyone leaves a room?
- Does your school participate in any environmental education or wellness programs like Kentucky Green & Healthy Schools, KY NEED, or Alliance for a Healthier Generation?
Upon submission, each school will earn $200 for one Power Pack per two-month period.
