Our Awards

There are four award categories, with all entries automatically entered into the Cumbrian Environmental School of the Year Award. Each award will come with a financial prize.

Our 2020 finalists have been chosen by a panel of judges. The ultimate winners are to be voted on by Cumbrian schools over the next month. Please have a look at some of the amazing work our environmental awards finalist schools have undertaken this year.

Within School Action Award

This award is for demonstrable impact either through a single initiative or a range of activities that take place within the schools boundary to lower the school’s environmental footprint and safeguard the school environment.

School in the Community Award

Pivotal in the wider community, we know that schools have influence far beyond their fence lines. This award is for schools or pupils engagement in environmentalism beyond the school perimeter.

The One World Award

Recognising our place in a global community, this award celebrates action and engagement in global environmentalism, specifically for overseas initiatives where a school has been involved.

The Eco-Innovation Award

This award celebrates the best innovative environmental activities in schools.
