Green Cup Challenge
January 26 to February 22, 2010
"Created by schools for schools, this first and only student-driven, inter-school energy challenge invites all schools – public and private, boarding and day - to measure and reduce campus electricity use and related GHG emissions, while supporting campus greening efforts including recycling and water conservation.
The GCC empowers students, raises awareness about climate change and conservation, and builds community. It educates the community about the importance of resource conservation, and encourages the participation of the entire campus. In 2009, 120 schools in 24 states reduced their aggregated carbon emissions by 2.5 million pounds, the equivalent of taking 220 cars off the road for one whole year."
