Green Awards


Your students will get the opportunity to participate in our three Green Awards offerings to help inspire and motivate them to Be Green and Build Green.

  • Students will be working to improve their individual character and leadership to earn verification status
  • The students will begin to look for green leadership and character traits in their classmates as they prepare to vote for classmates throughout the school year.
  • The students will work to reach the highest level of green to earn the MVG trophy and be considered for our Green13 National Award
"The Green13 award was one of the coolest things I’ve ever received. Such an honor. I was blown away."
