Louisiana Green Schools Challenge
Share |


What is the Green Schools Challenge? 

This is a yearly competition in which we encourage schools to undertake green project to make their school and/or communities a healthier place to live, learn, and grow.

The projects include raising awareness of environmental stewardship, reducing waste, energy and/or water use, or creating healthier spaces within your school.

There is no cost to compete and we encourage for projects to be low or no-cost projects. The projects that show the most impact per category; Elementary, Middle and High School, will win cash and prizes.

This program is designed to educate Louisiana about the benefits of green building and environmental stewardship by participation in hands-on, experiential projects.


The Green Schools Challenge provides all schools with the following:

  • USGBC Louisiana will provide mentors from our network of architects, engineers, and contractors to help schools implement successful projects.


More information and forms can be found in the Program Manual.


 The 2017-2018 Challenge is now complete. Check back in the fall for the next one.
