Greenest School Competition

The Greenest School in Canada competition is now open and will be closing on April 30, 2017.

The Canada Green Building Council and the Canada Coalition for Green Schools introduced the Greenest School in Canada competition in 2014, which seeks to highlight kindergarten to Grade 12 schools across the country that exemplify how sustainability can be woven into the infrastructure, culture and curriculum of a school.

Criteria and eligibility - demonstrate how you're educating students about sustainability
Schools that offer any grade from kindergarten to grade 12 in Canada are eligible to participate in the Greenest School in Canada competition, and will be judged on criteria including: efficient use of resources and reduced environmental impact; enhanced health and learning among students, teachers and staff; and emphasis on sustainability and resource-conservation education.

The types of questions we ask competing schools to answer include:
  • How is environmental education emphasized at your school?
  • Tell us about any conservation programs and efforts your school implements to minimize negative impacts on the environment.
  • Is the school is involved with community initiatives and if so, how?
It's not all about having a green school building - we are looking for schools that are weaving sustainability education into their curriculum and bringing programs and activities to students that encourage awareness about the environment.

Students Leading Sustainability:  Andy Kesteloo Memorial Project Award

Nominations for this year's award is now open and will be closing at 11:59pm on Sunday April 2, 2017.

The Andy Kesteloo Project Award is to recognize a student project that demonstrates leadership, innovation, inspiration and a creative vision for the future of sustainable design in the field of green building and communities. This competition challenges students to explore innovative, realistic design of the built environment thinking globally, acting locally to achieve a durable, efficient, comprehensive design that is easy to maintain and operate while being adaptable for future generations.

Criteria - The project should (but is not limited to):
  • Be a building, any component of a building, a green product, or part of the construction process (eg. layout, construction materials, technologies, systems, or methods of construction);
  • Inspire or teach others about forward thinking practices and design that serves to decrease contributions to global warming and climate change;
  • Clearly convey the fundamentals of sustainability by using innovative strategies and realistic solutions;
  • Recognize the need to provide options for today's and tomorrow's generation;
  • Present a creative vision for the future of green buildings and neighborhoods;
  • Articulate the project's key features and its environmental and human health benefits; and
  • Demonstrate the value and the importance of integrated/synergistic system design.  
Past winning projects include the integration of an industrial factory into an urban community; a culinary school that speaks interest in sustainable food practices; and an alternative school for at-risk youth which brings sustainability to the forefront of learning. If you passionately believe that your project can make a difference in the way we live, work, play or learn, get your submission in. The future is truly up to you and we know you’re up to that challenge.
