FedEx Launches Grow A Green School Grant Contest, Apps Due May 24

Do you know a school that makes the eco-friendly honor roll? FedEx is launching the Grow a Greener School Contest to help give teachers, students and parents the resources to create hands-on sustainability projects at their school.
Project submissions will be collected until noon CDT on May 24
From kindergarten to college, all schools are eligible for the grant contest, which will provide educators and students with the opportunity to win $3,000, $2,000 or $1,000 prizes to complete their school’s green initiatives.
Projects are encouraged to be sustainable and creative – whether it’s installing an alternative energy source, such as a solar panel, or even developing a learning garden, like the EarthSmart Outreach project FedEx volunteers helped complete in Dallas (video).
We hope you’ll take a moment to visit the contest page and consider participating by either submitting on behalf a local school group, or sharing the campaign with your environmental education colleagues through social media, email groups, newsletters, etc.
The public voting period will run from May 25th through May 31st on the FedEx Pinterest board.
A short entry form, along with the official rules, can be found visiting the contest page.
