GreenWorks! grants for shools
Get your green on with a Project Learning Tree (PLT) grant. PLT is awarding up to $1,000-3,000 to schools and youth organizations that propose environmental service-learning projects.
Apply here; deadline: September 30, 2013.
PLT, an award-winning national environmental education program for preK-12 educators and their students, is providing up to $1,000 for schools and youth organizations that propose environmental service-learning projects. Grants of up to $3,000 will also be awarded to registered PLT GreenSchools (registration is free) that have established a Green Team, completed one of more of the PLT GreenSchools! Investigations, and propose a project based on the findings of at least 1 of the PLT GreenSchools! Investigations. GreenWorks! encourages students to “learn by doing” through community action projects that improve an aspect of their school or their neighborhood’s environment. Some examples of past grant projects include energy conservation, habitat restoration, and watershed improvement.
