Greener Gateway Community Awards

Schools Award

Entry submissions

We are inviting schools to come forward with a video no longer than five minutes demonstrating how their project(s) promotes and addresses all, or any, of these four themes.

• Biodiversity

• Sustainability

• Food Growing

• Intergenerational Working 

There will be two entry levels, Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. Each submission will be judged independently with awards of Bronze, Silver and Gold to be won. There will be a ‘Best in Category’ award for the submission from each entry level for the project that scores the most points during judging. The schools who win ‘Best in Category’ will receive a £250 voucher to spend on relevant equipment or materials to help with the continuation of their project.
