Chicago, July 3, 2008 -- Healthy Schools Campaign is pleased to announce two exciting opportunities to promote and support green cleaning in schools around the nation:
  • The second annual Green Cleaning in Schools Award for schools and universities that show dedication and innovation in green cleaning methods and practices.
  • A series of series of green cleaning webinars to help participants develop green cleaning knowledge and learn best practices.

For the second year in a row, American School & University magazine presents the Green Cleaning Award, created in conjunction with HSC and the Green Cleaning Network, to honor schools and their partners that embrace green principles and practices in their maintenance operations.

Judges from HSC and the Green Cleaning Network will evaluate proposals from educational institutions around the country. Winning schools, which must demonstrate exceptional dedication to green cleaning, will be featured in an upcoming special supplement of American School & University magazine.

The judging criteria for the award are based on HSC’s Quick & Easy Guide to Green Cleaning in Schools.

Applications are due by Sept. 12, 2008. See for details and an application.

American School & University, the Green Clean Network, and Healthy Schools Campaign will co-sponsor a summer series of green cleaning webinars to help schools develop their green cleaning knowledge and learn best practices.

  All webinars include expert insight and practical advice from a highly-regarded panel of green cleaning leaders including Steve Ashkin of the Ashkin Group LLC, Healthy Schools Campaign Deputy Director Mark Bishop, and award-winning facilities managers from schools recognized in the first annual Green Cleaning in Schools awards.

The webinars feature two topics - Green Cleaning: Beyond Cleaning Chemicals and Green Cleaning and Infection Control to help participants integrate green cleaning more fully into all aspects of facilities maintenance.
