Eco-Schools Awards

The pinnacle of the Eco-Schools journey is a school achieving its Green Flag Award.  We know that amazing work is happening in schools and their communities to address the significant environmental issues that we face – from planting for nature and biodiversity, to cutting energy consumption, reducing water usage, and tackling litter and reducing waste.

Our first annual Eco-Schools Awards are an opportunity to highlight those Green Flag schools that have truly gone above and beyond in their Eco-Schools work, inspiring those around them and delivering innovative environmental action. 

Deadline for nominations is Friday 28 April 2023


How it works:

  • Schools must have a current Green Flag Award in order to be eligible.   
  • Winners will receive a sustainably crafted trophy to display at their school, and will be invited to share their work at our Eco-Committee Meet & Greet on 29 May
  • We will announce winners during Keep Scotland Beautiful week 8-12 May.
  • You are welcome to make multiple nominations, but must fill out the form separately each time.
  • All nominations must be supported by two photographs which you can email to ecoschools@keepscotlandbeautiful.org.  Please include the name of the school and Award Category in your email.
