Green Schools & Green Centers
The Maryland Green Schools Award Program allows schools and their communities to evaluate their efforts in environmental sustainability. Participating schools empower youth to make changes to reduce environmental impact, encouraging sustainability and fostering environmental literacy.
Maryland Green Center Program recognizes facilities that model efforts in environmental education, conservation & sustainable practices, as well as community engagement. Maryland Green Centers offer support to schools working towards the Maryland Green Schools Award.
Maryland Green School Leaders act as liaisons between schools and MAEOE. They provide outreach and support to schools throughout the state who are interested in becoming a Maryland Green School.
The annual Youth Summit celebrates Green Schools & Green Centers. The summit brings together schools, teachers, and students to discover programs and resources for schools through hands on learning with local environment education providers. All schools are invited to attend.
