Green & Healthy Schools Wisconsin connects, cultivates, and celebrates schools for nurturing healthy kids and sustainable communities. Public and private PK*-12 schools report achievements through an annual survey each fall and receive recognition as a Sprout, Seedling, Sapling, or a Sugar Maple School based on cumulative results. Green & Healthy Schools Wisconsin is administered by the Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources and Public Instruction and supported by partners across the state.
Annual Survey Period Open!
Green & Healthy Schools Wisconsin recognizes achievement toward three goals:
- Reducing environmental impacts and costs,
- Improving health and wellness, and
- Increasing environmental and sustainability literacy.
