The primary aim of the High School 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 High School 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 energy measures or projects that the school would undertake, which would directly result in measurable energy reduction or efficiency through a sustainable and innovative means.
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.
The category is open to all schools that teach grades 9 and above. This application must have the support of the organisation and its management. There will be one recipient 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.
