Applications are due March 1, 2018.

President's Environmental Youth Award (PEYA):

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):

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.

Contact PEYA@epa.gov or PIAEE@epa.gov for questions.
