Sustainable Schools Award - For Educators & Administrators
Each year, Anaheim Public Utilities recognizes K-12 Anaheim schools for making positive environmental impacts on campus and in curriculums. Through the Sustainable Schools Award program, schools showcase their energy- and water-efficiency programs, unique environmental initiatives, and environmental education programs for students and staff. Two winning schools are recognized each year and receive the opportunity to select one grand prize, including 30 ENERGY STAR® laptops, digital smart boards, or support for an on-site school sustainability project.
In addition to the Sustainable Schools Award program, Anaheim Public Utilities offers educators additional resources such as facility tours, extracurricular programs, and projects to enhance the educational experience for Anaheim students.
