Green Schools Program
Want to help create a healthy planet but unsure where to begin? Start with your school and magnify your impact! Your school is likely already recycling or working to reduce lunchtime food and plastic waste, but could your school do more to help the planet? Be creative! Have fun! Make sure your school receives recognition for its green efforts.
The Michigan Green Schools program is new and improved for the 2022 - 2023 school year and invites your school to participate! Applications and ideas for activities can be found at the NEW Michigan Green Schools site. Applications are accepted from January 1 through March 1st. The application process is slightly different this year, so please reach out if you have any questions.
Michigan Green Schools is dedicated to assisting all Michigan schools - public and private - to achieve environmental goals which include protecting the air, land, water and animals of our state along with world outreach through good ecological practices and the teaching of educational stewardship of students pre-kindergarten through senior high school.

Flag & Status
Green Schools will receive a Green School flag, an official Michigan Green School Certificate, and be recognized at the Monroe County Earth Day Celebration. If your school was previously recognized as an official Michigan Green School, you need to reapply each year as green status is designated on an annual basis.
Please note: Applications are accepted between January 1st and March 1st.
