Ohio EPA’s Encouraging Environmental Excellence in Education Program (E4) recognizes any K-12 public or private school for their achievements in environmental stewardship and efforts to educate and involve students in environmental topics.
There are three recognition classes: Root, Branch, and Leaf. All classes receive a certificate of recognition and recognition on Ohio EPA’s web site. Those in the branch class will also receive a window sticker decal. The leaf class will receive a flag and, schedule permitting, an award ceremony at the school.
E4 applications, which are accepted at any time, are available on Ohio EPA’s website. An individual school, school system or portion of aschool system can apply. For more information, visit epa.ohio.gov/ohioe3.
