The Big Help wants to recognize student-led green school projects

Nickelodeon’s “The Big Help” is partnering with National Wildlife Federation, National Environmental Education Foundation, and the National Education Association Trust this year.  Their goal is to find out about environmental projects kids are doing in schools.

The Big Help wants to hear all about the Environmental Projects going on at your school.  It’s your chance to tell them what projects your school is planning or what you have accomplished to help the environment.

Some of the prizes include:

  • Dozens of projects will be featured online at Nick.com
  • 10 projects will receive a $1,000 spot award to help take their environmental project to the next level.
  • 5 projects will receive “shout outs” on Nickelodeon and/or Nick.com.
  • 1 project will be chosen for a visit by Nickelodeon. In order to be considered for a visit from Nick and NWF, your project must take place between April 1st and 16th.

Who is eligible?

Elementary, middle and high schools (public and private) and after-school community-based programs with 501(c)(3) status.

What is the deadline?

All nomination’s must be received by March 30, 2012
