President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) (http://go.usa.gov/3u7XB):
The PEYA program recognizes outstanding environmental projects by K-12 youth. Each year the PEYA program honors a wide variety of projects developed by young individuals, school classes (kindergarten through high school), summer camps, public interest groups, and youth organizations to promote environmental awareness. Recent award-winning student projects included forming recycling programs for pencils and books, starting an environmental news YouTube channel, and creating a better method to protect migratory birds from airplanes.
Projects need an adult sponsor. Talk to your students today about submitting their work.
Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators (PIAEE) (http://go.usa.gov/3u7XQ):
The PIAEE program recognizes outstanding K-12 teachers who employ innovative approaches to environmental education and use the environment as a context for learning for their students.
PIAEE’s winners will be awarded up to $2,500 to be used to further their professional development in environmental education. The teacher’s local education agency will also receive up to $2,500 to fund environmental education activities and programs.
