Make It Happen

1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders. Our state depends upon the next generation… And Washington Green Schools is working with you to give them the tools they need to succeed.

2017-18 Rave Green Certified Schools

We are excited to announce our 2017-18 Rave Green certified schools! Schools attain Rave Green Certification when they reach or sustain Gold or Platinum status as Washington Green Schools. To become recognized as a certified Washington Green School, school community members (students, teachers, parents, and staff) complete action projects in one or more of our six environmental categories: waste, energy, water, transportation, school grounds and gardens, and healthy school buildings. Rave Green certified schools have completed 3-6 environmental action projects on campus — a significant accomplishment.

The Seattle Sounders FC have partnered with Washington Green Schools to support and motivate youth to be stewards of the environment. When schools earn a Rave Green Certification, they are eligible to receive autographs, tickets, and/or meet and greets with the Sounders. Read the full press release here.
