Nominate your school for WWF's Green Ambassador Awards

WWF has launched nationwide search to find inspirational schools putting environmental issues at the heart of their curriculum

Posted by Hannah Oakman | April 07, 2015 | Sustainability

As part of WWF’s Green Ambassador Awards 2015, a winning school will be awarded £5,000 and two runners-up will win £2,500 each, to go towards new green initiatives. The winning school will be crowned WWF’s Green Ambassador School of the Year.

From green-fingered gardeners to waste-busters and energy saving heroes, WWF would love to hear about primary schools making a positive difference to the future of the planet. 

'I think it's great that schools with 'green teams' can be recognised and rewarded for their green projects,' says CBBC presenter Ceallach Spellman. 'Has your school created a wildlife garden to encourage wildlife in the school grounds, or have found a brilliant way to save energy? Whatever your school is doing to help to take care of the environment, enter now for your chance to win.'

Following on from the huge success of the 2014 awards, launched by HRH Prince Charles and sponsored by Alpro, the awards will highlight the fantastic environmental work that the green teams are creating within their school. The prize money awarded is for new green initiatives within school.

The closing date for school entries to the WWF Green Ambassador School Awards is 15 April 2015. Awards for teachers and pupils are already open and a ceremony for all winners will take place at the Living Planet Centre in Woking in July.
