Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology

Yup it's contest time!!  The winner of this contest helps their kid's school win a "green" makeover!!  Basically you will be entering your kid's school into the contest, if you win, your school gets help to run greener, and in an age where school budgets are getting slashed like crazy, this is a win-win for everyone!  In my school district, the budget got slashed so much that we are now a Pay to Play state.  That means anytime your kids want to do an after school activity, you pay for it.  That is ontop of paying taxes to the school already!  Hopefully, if I win, the school can pay it forward on those savings and give a bit more to the kids. 

Here are even more reasons why schools should go green!

When a school goes green, children benefit—as well as the environment! Green schools lead to:

- Improved student performance. When children learn in classrooms with natural daylight, improved sound quality and non-toxic building materials such as non-VOC carpets and paints, test scores can improve as much as 20%. Attendance also improves!

- More funds for student resources. When green upgrades are made to a school, water and energy costs can be reduced by as much as 40%. These savings can be channeled back into resources that directly benefit students, such as textbooks, computers and other essentials.

- Reduced carbon footprint. Greening a school significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming.
