Winners of the first-ever Green Apple Awards will be revealed at the event as well.

Fourteen schools are competing for $1 million in project funding. With Project Green, student-led Green Teams perform sustainability audits of their campuses, research ways to improve energy and water conservation and make recommendations for upgrades.

Over the years, schools have received funding for dual-flush toilets, low-flow faucets, solar tubes, native plant gardens, outdoor classrooms and other projects.

This year, Project Green is focused solely on water conservation as a means of educating students about climate change and drought.

The Green Apple Awards will be given to individuals and groups that have made outstanding efforts to further the cause of sustainability. Award categories include Principal of the Year, Teacher/Educator of the Year, School Green Team of the Year and Green Project/Initiative of the Year.
