Zayed Future Energy Prize's Global High School Prize
From the Green Schools Alliance and Center for Green Schools:
The prestigious Zayed Future Energy Prize's Global High School Prize annually grants $100,000 for a sustainability or energy project to a high school in each of five regions (the Americas, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and Asia). Finalists - two per region - attend the the Zayed Future Energy Prize Award Ceremonies in Abu Dhabi, where schools from around the world meet each other and winners are announced. Applications are open now through July 14, 2014.
The primary aim of the Global High Schools category is to inspire future generations across the globe by instilling an ethos of sustainability from an early age, including an appreciation of issues in energy, and broader sustainability.
The Global High Schools category will therefore not focus on past activities of the school. Instead, each school will submit a detailed proposal for a project, and the Prize will become a grant that enables the project’s completion. While the main objective is to promote sustainability in schools, special emphasis of the proposed project should be on specific measurable initiatives to promote renewable energy and sustainability, which may include improvements in energy or water efficiency, or a reduction in waste.
Grant money will be allocated to one school in each of five regions: The Americas, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and Asia. Each regional winner will be allocated up to $100,000, with the final Prize amounts decided based on financial information submitted in the project proposals.
