QUEEN’S ROAD: The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), and Carrier and United Technologies Corporation (UTC) will jointly organise the annual national-level ‘Green Your School’ contest.
IGBC has invited entries from schools (Classes 6 to 8) from across the country on ways to green schools. The entries should be in the form of a presentation with videos and pictures.
The top three schools that qualify for the finals will get to make a detailed presentation before a panel of eminent judges on November 20. The winners will be awarded at the Green Building Congress 2015 in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, the following day.
The top three schools will be awarded `3.5 lakh, `2.5 lakh and `1.5 lakh respectively for implementing their ideas at their schools with IGBC’s help.
IGBC chairman Prem C Jain said the contest’s objective is to make youngsters understand the importance of keeping the planet green. He said over the years, the contest (earlier known as Green-I) has attracted more than 450 schools and touched over 2,500 students across the country.
The last date for registration is September 30. Schools can send their entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
