Green Cup Challenge™ - Overview

The Green Cup Challenge™ is the first and only national student-driven interschool energy challenge. The GCC supports student greening efforts including recycling and water conservation, raises awareness and helps schools reduce their carbon footprint. In 2009, 120 public and private, day and boarding schools across 24 states reduced their aggregated carbon emissions by 2.5 million pounds, the equivalent of taking 220 cars off the road for one year! Greening our schools is a challenge and commitment, not a competition. We hope you will join other Green Cup Challenge™ schools nationwide to celebrate progress, build community and to work and win together!

The spirit of the GCC encourages and highlights the success of local, state or regional GCC groups, while allowing these groups to join with schools nationwide to work together toward a common goal: generating the greatest aggregated carbon savings possible.  All GCC schools receive beautiful Plaques with their names etched on them to recognize their school’s participation in this important event. Schools are also able to compete for local and national prizes. 

GSA Green Resource Fair - Overview

This inaugural Green Resource Fair, hosted by Pace Academy, is bringing together all members of the green school community including faculty, students, facility managers, business officers, parents, and other school decision makers with national, state, and local resource providers to share best practices and explore sustainable, energy-smart solutions. Breakout Training Sessions addressing energy efficiency, conservation, benchmarking your school, green operations and maintence, green cleaning, sustainability curriculum, growing your student club, and more, will be offered at this green event.

Event Registration

All schools, whether or not they are participating in the Green Cup Challenge™, are invited to take part in the afternoon Green Resource Fair and Breakout Training Sessions.

For schools participating in the Green Cup Challenge™, each school must have a minimum of one faculty advisor and two students present at the Kick Off conference to participate in the Challenge. Please register online or, for more information, contact Eric Estroff at: eestroff@paceacademy.org




The Green Cup Challenge was first launched as an interschool energy challenge in 2006 at Phillips Exeter Academy, Northfield Mount Hermon and the Lawrenceville School, and joined with the Green Schools Alliance (GSA) in 2007 to formally became a GSA program. In 2009, 33 schools in Georgia participated in the Green Cup Challenge hosted by the Westminster School. Asking schools to measure and reduce campus electricity use and GHG emissions, the GCC builds awareness about climate change and the environment, educates the community about the importance of conservation, and encourages the participation of the entire campus.
