The Boston Bruins and the Boston Bruins Foundation have partnered with Project Green Schools and Walmart for the Green Up New England Challenge, which aims to develop Green Student Leaders in schools throughout New England.

Schools across New England that enter the challenge will be asked to compete in energy reduction, waste reduction, water reduction, best green school practices, best green community practices, and best green sports practices. Awards will be given for each category.

A team of judges will measure submitted applications on overall concept, environmental impact, creativity, number of participants engaged, and how effective schools were at getting the message out.

APPLY NOW - Deadline is March 22, 2017.

Honorees will be announced March 28, 2017 and honored at the Bruins game on April 1st, 2017; the 1st day of Earth Month. Honorees will also receive a banner to display in their school.

Don't forget to nominate a MA/RI Green Student of the Month between now and May.

Green Up New England Challenge winners and Green Students of the Month will both be recognized at the Green Difference Awards at the MA State House on Friday, May 19, 2017.
