Teachers: Join the KICK Challenge!
What is the KICK Challenge?
Keep It Clean, Kansas! We're inviting schools across the state to get involved in becoming greener schools by reducing or eliminate the waste they produce. We're looking for lead teachers and their students to initiate an investigation of waste in their school and work collaboratively to come up with creative and innovative solutions.
Through a partnership with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) we can provide support to lead teachers and students to complete this investigation and share their solutions. Video submissions of solutions enters your school in a competition for one of three $1,000 awards, and recognition as being green champions in our state.
