2015 Green Cleaning Award Winners

Schools and universities across the country can learn from this year’s winners of the eighth annual Green Cleaning Award for Schools & Universities competition. 

In this awards program, an expert jury of green cleaning professionals chose nine 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 and one Honorable Mention in the K-12/School Districts category. One Grand Award winner, one Silver Award winner and five Honorable Mentions were chosen 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.

This year's winners show how much one education institution, district or campus can accomplish—and how it can improve in measurable ways.
