Green Star Teachers
Do you know a gold-star—we mean—green-star teacher who helps students understand and respect our environment? An educator who shines a light on a cleaner, greener way to live on our planet? Nominate that person as a “Green Star Teacher” and show them how much you appreciate what they do!
The Green Stars
What would life be without teachers who went the distance, those who encouraged students to dig into their studies with activities that connected them in meaningful ways to our big blue-and-green world? To mark our 10th year of educating Hampton Roads residents about all things green, askHRgreen.org is accepting nominations for our “Green Star Teachers” educator recognition program. A regional steering committee will select 10 educators from those nominated, and each will receive an award of $1,000 to cover supplies, classroom resources, or funding to underwrite a dynamic “green” student-driven initiative.
How To Nominate
If you know a local educator in Hampton Roads who goes above and beyond to teach students how to live cleaner and greener, tell us about it! Maybe it’s someone who leads the ecology club, maybe a scout leader who regularly hosts community cleanups with the troops, or someone who started a learning garden at school. Whatever greentastic thing they do, we want to hear about it! Submit your “Green Star” nomination below.
Nominations are open to any educator working with youth K-12 in Hampton Roads and will be accepted through December 15, 2021. In early 2022, a regional steering committee will select 10 educators from those nominated, and each will receive an award of $1,000 to cover needs such as supplies, classroom resources, or funding to underwrite a dynamic “green” student-driven initiative.
The Green Star Teachers nomination period closed on December 15th. Winners will be selected and notified in early 2022.
