Rise & Shine BlueScopeWIN Environmental Schools Program

The Environmental Schools program is part of our Rise & Shine campaign. This competition is open to schools in the City of Wollongong.

The competition aims to:

  • Develop and improve environmental standards in schools
  • Encourage students to play a positive role in the protection and enhancement of their local environment
  • Encourage students to take part in environmental projects
  • Encourage students to show environmental care, concern and pride in their school.

Our major program sponsor, BlueScopeWIN Community Partners, has generously donated cash prizes worth $4000 in total. To help us measure how this prize money makes a difference, we ask winning schools to tell us how they spend this money.
