Green Schools Trophy

A group of children with a trophy
Children from Burton Fields School, the winners of the 2023 trophy

Every year we invite Staffordshire schools to showcase their conservation and environmental projects for a chance to win £100 cash and hold the CPRE Green Schools’ Trophy for a year.

We’re on the lookout for inspiring projects that help make the local environment a better place. 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.

The winning school for 2023 is Burton Fields School, who have improved a pond, made bug hotels, installed bug houses, composted waste, created a bog garden, log piles and a bird feeding station and planted a wildflower meadow…the list goes on! They have also planted more than 100 trees.

The winning school for 2022 was Picknalls First School in Uttoxeter, in recognition of their brilliant work to engage children with nature through gardening, planting trees and wildflowers, and recycling.

We are now inviting entries for the 2024 award. The closing date is Friday 7th June.
