Today kicks off the 31st annual French Quarter Fest.

About the Louisiana Green Schools Challenge

USGBC Louisiana challenges schools across the state to green their facilities. By getting students involved in sustainable projects, schools can lower operating costs, improve indoor learning spaces, while empowering teachers and youth, and our community forever. The mission of this program is to educate Louisiana about the benefits of green building and environmental stewardship, by participation in hands-on, green projects.
