Cool Schools LogoCOOL SCHOOL CHALLENGE

The Cool School Challenge engages students and teachers in practical strategies to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions school-wide. Students challenge individual classrooms to reduce their carbon emissions over a set period of time, and utilize a carbon calculator to evaluate progress.

Best of all, because it's aligned to the Eco-Schools USA program, schools that complete the Challenge automatically qualify for a bronze level award through the Eco-Schools USA program!
