School energy-efficiency projects are set to be among the big winners in an environmental awards scheme.
The Green School Awards aim to celebrate school-led projects in fields including green travel, conservation, air quality, recycling, and health and wellbeing.
They are open to schools from across the south-east, with winners being announced for the regions as a whole, and in its different districts and ‑ where applicable – in different age groups.
The judging organisations include Maidstone lighting firm NCS Technology, which is particularly keen to see nominations for energy-efficiency initiatives.
NCS Technology director Mike Cardno said: “NCS are predominantly an education-based technology company, and part of our product range is supplying and installing energy-efficient lighting.
“This is our second year at the Green School Awards, and we’re supporting the energy conservation part of the scheme.
“It’s really great to see kids getting involved in switch-off and walk-to-school campaigns.
“These kids are going to be the energy-efficient challengers of the future.”
The deadline for submitting nominations for the awards is December 1.
Apart from NCS Technology, the other judging organisations are East Kent Recycling, the Ethical Earth Company, Golding Vision, Loop CR, SGS Energy, Streetspace, Medway Council and Ashford International Hotel, where the awards ceremony will take place in February.
