USGBC Louisiana launches the Louisiana Green Schools Challenge

The U.S. Green Building Council, Louisiana Chapter (USGBC Louisiana) is starting a new outreach program, called the Green Schools Challenge. The mission of this program is to educate schools across the state about the benefits of green building and environmental stewardship by participation in hands-on, experiential projects. LEED Accredited Professionals and green building advocates in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industries will help schools implement low/ no-cost green projects; these projects may be a simple as a recycling program or as complicated as an energy audit.

At the end of the school year, projects showing the greatest impact will be given cash prizes, trophies, and acknowledgment at Greenbuild 2014, which will be held in New Orleans in October 2014.

USGBC Lousiana is currently looking for schools & mentors to participate.  Registration is due August 27, with green projects starting in October.

For more information, please visit the USGBC Louisiana website: www.usgbclouisiana.org
