The Beautiful Iowa School Award encourages service and conservation in schools both during and outside the school day through Clean & Green Lessons and/or service-learning. Any school or after-school program can create a Beautiful Iowa School, and apply for the award by going to the Teacher Support/Award Program page. Sixteen awards are available each year, ranging from $50 to $400, depending on the scope of the project. Each school also receives a banner and stickers to identify their school as a Beautiful Iowa School. Teachers Going Green is funded by Keep Iowa Beautiful through Iowa Department of Natural Resources SWAP Funds, and is created and maintained by Next Step Adventure.
