2012 Green Cleaning Award Winners
This year's competition brought innovation and green expertise to the forefront, and the winners are an example for schools everywhere — large and small.
In this awards program, an expert jury of green-cleaning professionals chose eight education institutions whose green cleaning programs went above and beyond just using green products to protect health without harming the environment. The jury named one Grand Award winner, one Silver Award winner and two Honorable Mentions in the K-12/School Districts category; and one Grand Award winner, one Best New Program winner and two Honorable Mentions in the Higher Education category.
Judging criteria were based on the comprehensiveness and quality of the program, and how well each education institution followed the steps as outlined in the second edition of The Quick & Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools.
The following pages show how much one education institution, district or campus can accomplish — and how it can improve in measurable ways.
