2013 National Search for Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Schools...

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) through the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), in cooperation with the Office of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Smart Communications, Inc. will conduct the 2013 National Search for Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Schools.
The Search aims to:
  1. encourage schools/academic institutions to become more actively involved in environmental issues at a practical and local level; and
  2. develop skills and understanding among the students, faculty and school administrators in initiating active responses and increasing community awareness and participation on environmental concerns.
The Search is open to elementary, secondary and tertiary schools nationwide.

The deadline for the submission of school entries for elementary and secondary schools to DepEd Division Offices is on or before March 15, 2013. Selected entries from the elementary and secondary schools will then be submitted to the EMB Regional Office by the DepEd Division Office by June 15, 2013. The regional finalists should submit the exhibit-ready materials of their entries by July 19, 2013.

All winning entries for each category, together with the selected entries will be displayed during the national awarding ceremonies to be held in November 2013, in time for the National Environmental Awareness Month Celebration.
