WSD Nominated for Green Ribbon Award

 

MADISON — Two Wisconsin public schools and one school district will be considered for awards from the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools program. The awards program recognizes schools and districts that act to reduce their environmental impact and costs, improve health and wellness, and provide effective environmental and sustainability education. Wisconsin’s 2017 nominees are Houlton Elementary School, Hudson School District, and Kromrey Middle School, Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District. In addition, Washburn School District was nominated for a District Sustainability Award. “Meeting the requirements to be considered a Green Ribbon school means taking a hard look at day-to-day practices to make improvements,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers. “The ‘green teams’ in these schools are a collaborative group that includes parents and students, the food service and transportation director, student services staff members, and faculty and custodial staff members, all working together to move the school and community toward a healthier, more ecological and sustainable future.” Winners at the federal level will be announced on April 24. Each of the nominees will also receive Green & Healthy Schools Wisconsin “Sugar Maple” certification and be recognized nationally through Project Learning Tree’s “Green Schools” program and the National Wildlife Federation’s “Eco-Schools USA” program.
