Recruit a School or Teacher to the SP K-12 Mini-Challenge and Earn 10 Bonus Points!

Registration for the Sustainable Pittsburgh K-12 Challenge is open now! Principals and teachers (of all subjects) are invited to sign up by the deadline on October 31, 2018 to compete. If you successfully recruit K-12 school participants between September 1 – September 30, you’ll receive 10 bonus points for your organization! This free program is a brief 18-week challenge designed for teachers and students to easily participate in sustainability actions. The program is intended to provide resources, ideas, suggestions, and lesson plans to incorporate sustainability into student education in and out of the classroom. All K-12 schools of all sizes are invited to sign up for the competition. The competition starts on October 1, 2018 and will end the same time as the yearlong Sustainable Pittsburgh Challenge on January 31, 2018.

There are several benefits to the program including free tools, workshops, impact, recognition, and leadership. The new K-12 Master Playbook will be available for teachers, complete with sustainability lesson plans and classroom activities aligned to Common Core Standards. We also invite teachers to network and share ideas with each other at our workshops. Through the Challenge website, teachers can track actions and gain public recognition for their achievements. The Sustainable Pittsburgh K-12 Challenge will provide teachers with concepts to educate student leaders, who can lead the way to a sustainable future.

Every action makes a difference. What difference can schools in your neighborhood make this year? Learn more about the Sustainable Pittsburgh K-12 Challenge, or sign up to compete by October 31, 2018. Don’t forget to recruit others for those 10 extra points!
