Applications are due by Dec. 16 and may be emailed or mailed following the directions printed on the application.

Presented by Healthy Schools Campaign, American School & University magazine and the Green Cleaning Network, the Green Cleaning Award for Schools & Universities is based on the 5 Steps to Green Cleaning in Schools. Winners are profiled in the April issue of American School & University magazine.

Winners of the award join us for our green cleaning webinar series, and some have gone on to become members of our Leadership Council. We also profile each of the winners on our blog to recognize the amazing work they’re doing and highlight that for schools across the country hoping to improve or start their own green cleaning efforts. Learn about past winners in the Green Clean Schools blog.

Through our participation in the Green Cleaning Award, we’ve been privileged to learn about many dedicated cleaning programs doing inspiring things for the health of their students, staff and community. Each year, the applicant pool gets larger, more innovative and even more inspiring. From small schools just starting out on the green cleaning journey to large universities applying for the third or fourth time, the applicants consistently teach us new lessons about green cleaning and the indoor school environment.

Download the application today and make sure to send it in before Dec. 16. We look forward to reading these applications and hope to hear from you!
