GO GREEN PROJECT--Overview
With the gas prices rising, concerns of global warming intensifying, and
politicians debating possible forms of alternative energy, our chapters need to
get involved with this national concern. Last year the FBLA National Officer
team unveiled a brand new Go Green national project which sparked the interest
from the halls of Capitol Hill to the classrooms of students in our more than
5,300 schools across the country. It is a great way for our members to help
preserve the environment while simultaneously discovering the tremendous
influence energy and conservation can have on the business world. This project
has now been added to our national recognition programs.
Chapters participating in this project choose from a variety of "earth friendly"
activities such as donating energy efficient light bulbs to senior citizens,
celebrating Earth Day, getting involved in recycling activities, bringing in
environmental speakers to chapter meetings, and encouraging individuals to "go
green" i.e. reducing electricity, walking to school, etc. In addition, chapters
develop an innovative green project to expand upon. One chapter in each Region
will receive national recognition.
The deadline for this project is:
