The IConservePA website urges your school to commemorate the 40th Earth Day in 2010 by undertaking a meaningful conservation project at your school! Register now for the Earth Day 40 School Challenge and undertake a project to improve the environment and conserve natural resources at your school or nearby community.
Through January 29, middle schools and junior high schools across Pennsylvania can register to participate in the Earth Day 40 Schools Challenge – one of three challenges offered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, cooperating state agencies, and other partners in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the first Earth Day.
A Grand Prize package worth more than $1,500 is up for grabs, plus three schools will receive honorable mention prizes. Every school who participates will be acknowledged on the Earth Day 40 website.
Whether led by a club or a class, the project should involve lots of students and if local people, organizations, and businesses can be involved, too, that’s even better!
Your school will be competing against schools from across the state and every school’sproject will be carefully evaluated by a special panel of judges.
Grades 5-9 are eligible for the competition focusing on projects that bring lasting positive environmental change to the schools and inspiration to the surrounding communities.
Spread the word and help our youth demonstrate their green resourcefulness. Register now!
