8/2/10: Please help Green Schools and Vote for us!

Please help Green Schools and VOTE DAILY August 2 - September 10.

Green Schools was recently selected as 1 of 41 finalists in the Tom's of Maine's 50 States for Good initiative and WE NEED YOUR HELP! Our project, its goals, and its positive impact on the community stood out and we hope to bring our project...100 Green Schools for Good to your School & Community!

The Green Schools organization has a chance at receiving $20,000 in funding once the public voting begins. Green Schools has been able to reach numerous schools and communities with our environmental fairs and educational summits. Our goal is to take a model that we know is highly effective and to duplicate best practices in 100 Schools! Following this event, each school will be challenged to create an environmental project with long-term sustainable impacts on the school, the greater community, and our planet.

Please help Green Schools and VOTE DAILY August 2 - September 10.
50 States for Good is a national initiative to support the goodness behind grassroots community projects and we need you to nominate and vote for Green Schools.

Thank you!

Tomorrow (March 27) at 8:30 p.m. the world will send a powerful message that climate change is a priority that must be dealt with now. By turning off non-essential lighting for one hour, Earth Hour people across the globe will show their support for lasting action to protect Earth's natural resources, environment, and climate.
Earth Hour has grown into a global phenomenon that has captured the world's attention. Each year, individuals, organizations, businesses, and state and local governments come together to show their support by turning off the lights in homes, the workplace, and at iconic landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Las Vegas Strip, Sydney's Opera House, and more. In 2009 alone, people in 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents turned out for Earth Hour.

We encourage the entire Green Schools community to participate and help make Earth Hour 2010 the biggest effort yet. Getting involved is easy.
