Earn points by completing activities that relate to our goal of protecting watersheds and building a connection with our local water resources.

We rounded up water-related field trips, classroom presentations, curriculum, things you can do at home and more so you can easily find activities that interest you. You can also develop your own activity or find one elsewhere, just make sure it relates to water.

Reporting your activity to get points is simple: take a few photos while doing your activity and then submit them to us via the online Activity Reporting Form. Reflo will review your submission and award your school points.

The Leaderboard shows current points of all competing schools.  We'll update this board once per month and send participants progress reports so you can track the impact your school is making.

Awards for the most motivated and engaged schools and individuals will be announced at the fourth annual Green Schools Conference in June!
