Green Schools Program

Michigan Green Schools SealWant 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 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 1st through March 3rd. 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

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.
