June 22, 2009 | Written By: Healthy Schools Campaign
On your marks, get set, go! The 2009 Green Cleaning Award for Schools & Universities is now accepting applications. The award is presented by HSC in collaboration with American School & University magazine and the Green Cleaning Network. Winners will be profiled in a special supplement of the magazine, which is a nationwide publication that highlights successful schools around the country.
Criteria for the award are based on the Five Simple Steps to Green Cleaning outlined in HSC's Quick & Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools.
In the past, schools have shown off winning strategies that included: vanquishing traditional vacuums in favor of backpack models; using team cleaning for greater efficiency; noticeably improving indoor air quality for students, faculty and staff; and saving both time and money in the process. All schools with green cleaning programs are encouraged to apply for this prestigious award and celebrate their success in going green. Don't miss out! Applications must be received by September 11, 2009.
