Green Up Day
Green Up Vermont
PROJECTS FOR STUDENTS K - 12
POSTER . . . . WRITING
These Green Up Educational Projects provide a great way to involve young people constructively in promoting a good clean environment and encouraging pride and respect.
For over thirty years, students statewide have participated in the Green Up Day poster design project. One overall design is selected, printed in full color, and appears throughout the state on general store bulletin boards, outdoor kiosks, in schools and businesses and other places to catch attention and encourage people to take part in Green Up Day.
We encourage thoughtful adults to make the opportunity known to students K through 12. Teachers have told us that they enjoy doing the Green Up poster design project because it is relevant to the lessons they are teaching in their curriculum.taking care of our communities and the environment and respect for fellow citizens and nature's animal life. Green Up is about Vermonters taking care of Vermont. The finished poster art should be 11x14 inches. 11x14 inch drawing paper is available at many office supply and art supply stores.
WRITING - "WRITE UP FOR GREEN UP!"
Our very first "Write Up" project started January 2007. We wanted an opportunity for "a little litter literature," for literary expression. It was great, and now we can't wait for more to come, year after year, annually each and every year.
Students are invited to write their thoughts about Green Up in the form of a poem or an essay of up to 400 words.
