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 its Green Star Teachers educator recognition program.
Nominations are now open to any educator working with youth K-12 in Hampton Roads and will be accepted through Dec. 15, 2021. A regional steering committee will select 10 educators from those nominated, and each will receive an award of $1,000. The awards will cover needs such as supplies, classroom resources or funding to underwrite a dynamic “green” student-driven initiative.
The Green Star Teachers program coincides with askHRgreen.org’s 10th anniversary year, and is one of many exciting programs happening this year to commemorate a decade of working together to make Hampton Roads cleaner and greener.
