Maine’s K-12 Schools: The Green Story

Schools are critical factor to the future of Maine. They are anchors of their communities and they are the place where our future is crafted. Maine students learn about life and begin to really develop their personal stories.

Maine’s K-12 schools, their students and staff are doing lots of important, helpful and creative things in response to the need to conduct our lives in ways that enable an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life in our state. They are the stories of our future.

In May 2011, the USGBC Maine Chapter, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity committed to creating a sustainable built environment in Maine, launched a green story collection campaign to document all of these wonderful efforts and initiatives and spread the word by showcasing them in a photo essay on “Maine’s K-12 Schools – The Green Story.”

The stories debuted at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting, In the Limelight, on November 10, 2011 at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies to an impressed crowd.  We are pleased to share these stories with you, too.  Please click the link below to access the story collection in PDF format.  Thank you!
