Get involved in the ninth year of Science World’s BC Green Games, a province-wide competition designed to motivate action, enable sharing and celebrate the green efforts of BC schools. We are currently recruiting a team of judges to review submissions and select 5 elementary and 5 secondary team projects, awarding each winning school $1000 to continue their green initiatives!
Over the past eight years our competition has attracted over 800 projects from over 40 school districts across British Columbia covering topics such as schoolyard greening, energy conservation, recycling & composting and community stewardship. Get inspired by last year’s entries – check out the project gallery at www.bcgreengames.ca.
