Green Schools Trophy
Applications are now invited for CPRE Staffordshire’s annual Green Schools award scheme. All Staffordshire schools are invited to showcase their conservation and environmental projects for a chance to win £50 cash and hold the CPRE Green Schools’ Trophy for a year.
We look for inspiring projects that contribute to the protection, conservation or improvement of the local environment. This could be through cutting down on single-use plastics, practical conservation work, creating wildlife habitats, promoting energy-saving or waste reduction/recycling, green transport schemes or any other original idea your school may come up with.
Last year’s winners, Kingsmead School in Hednesford, received the award for protecting and rescuing hedgehogs, repairing and improving its school pond, and creating a wildflower meadow.
The closing date for this year’s award was 23 October and we have received some fantastic entries. It’s great to see what schools across the county have managed to do despite being partially or fully closed for several months this year. Hedgehog rescue and habitat creation, litter-picking, bee-keeping, tree-planting and creating a wildflower meadow are just some examples of how schools are helping to improve their local area.
We will be announcing the winner next half-term.
