The Zero Waste School Awards offer an opportunity for students to earn prizes and cash awards for their school by posting pictures and videos relating to their sustainability and zero waste efforts! In short, by sharing the great work you are doing to help your school go zero waste, you can get cool gear and earn awards for your school.
Zero Waste Schools (ZWS) Challenge
Celebrating the roll out of the first 100 ZWS, a winner will be selected from each ZWS route (one winner in Manhattan, one winner in Brooklyn), based on compliance data collected by DSNY staff and observations by RCP/DOE. #ZWSChallenge
What You Need to Know
A student alone cannot sign up for a contest. NYCDOE school teachers that would like to sign up for a ZWS account should see their principal or sustainability coordinator to obtain their school’s unique validation code. If they do not have your schools validation code, email email@example.com .
