Time is running out for schools across the state to have the chance to win money to support their environmental programs through the Good Sports School Challenge. The deadline for schools to enter the school challenge and the chance to win both money and a trip to a UT Football Game is Friday, October 5, 2018.
According to officials eight schools will be awarded $1,000 for the Good Sports Always Give Back (GSAR) School challenge; one exemplary school will be awarded $1,500 for the GSAR Sustainability Steward Award; and one school will be awarded $1,500 for the Best New Program. Schools that are actively reducing waste, providing environmental education in their school or who have a program in place to reduce their overall impact through energy and water conservation, recycling programs, the use of green space or
other environmental programs, should visit www. Eastman.com/GSAGB.
The 10 winning schools will also receive a special tailgate celebration at a University
of Tennessee football game, as well as be recognized during an on-field presentation. K-12 schools in Tennessee can nominate their school to win at www.Eastman.com/GSAGB.
