Green Schools Recognition ProgramDear 2018 Green Schools Participant:

Congratulations! The judges’ scores are in, and based on their evaluations, your school has received recognition as a 2018 Green School of Excellence!

We hope you take great pride in your school’s efforts to become a model of environmental stewardship and sustainability for Palm Beach and Martin County schools. To celebrate your green accomplishments, we wish to invite you to the 10th Annual Green Schools Awards, to be held at Florida Atlantic University’s Carole and Barry Kaye Auditorium on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

This year, we are celebrating 10 years of Green Schools and will honor over 120 schools! To mark this special milestone year with pomp and circumstance (and accommodate our growing program!), we will honor our schools with a formal awards ceremony in FAU’s majestic Kaye Auditorium, followed by a celebratory reception in the Live Oak Pavilion.

Registration and photos will begin at 1:00 p.m., with the Awards program beginning promptly at 2:00 p.m., followed by a reception from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

In order to honor all of our schools, each school may bring two complimentary representatives to the awards event. Your school may send up to eight additional representatives to this special event, but your school will need to cover their registration costs, which will be $22 per person. Please contact us directly to make arrangements for groups larger than six.

The event will feature an inspiring keynote speaker, Dr. Douglas Tallamy, who will share ways that our local actions to sustain native wildlife can make a big difference. Our Master of Ceremonies will recognize our schools’ many green accomplishments and announce this year’s special awards: our Top Green Schools, Judges’ Choice Award recipients, and the Green Principal, Teacher, Student, and Facilities/Food Service Staff of the Year awards! Each school will also receive a 2018 Green Schools Recognition Program banner and certificate.

To attend this milestone event, please REGISTER your school by Monday, May 7.

Congratulations again on this great, green accomplishment! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us: 561-686-6600 or lbutcher2013@fau.edu.
