About the Summit

The 21st annual meeting of certified Oregon Green Schools will return to the Western Mennonite School on Friday April 14, 2017, 9045 Wallace Road Northwest, Salem, OR 97304.

Schools with active Oregon Green Schools certification are invited to bring 4 students and 1 chaperon. Costs for a classroom substitute teacher and travel expenses will be generously covered by each school’s garbage/recycling hauler.

The Summit is an opportunity for students from across the state to convene for a day of celebration, learning and networking. At the summit, we strive to celebrate the accomplishments of each school and to provide opportunities to strengthen programs.

Students will attend educational sessions that represent each section of the Oregon Green Schools application: waste reduction and recycling, water conservation, and energy conservation.

Students will also attend a session where they can share the story of the green school program at their school and learn from other schools.


Summit Details:

  • Continental breakfast provided.
  • Attendance at the event is FREE. Due to generous support from solid waste & recycling haulers across the state, sponsorships are available to reimburse schools for the cost of a substitute teacher and travel expenses. Registration opens February 2017.
