Each year, the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter challenges public and private schools across the region to devise and implement, with the help of Green Mentors, the most creative, effective and no- or low-cost sustainable practices for their schools. Rather than complete comprehensive six-month projects, as Green Schools Quest participants have done in the past, for the 2020-21 school year, participating schools are invited to integrate sustainability into students’ learning through the lens of a monthly theme. We are currently seeking both School and Mentor participants. Applications are due September 30th.
