Michigan Green Schools Application

This is where you can download the application form to apply for Green School status. If you are just starting, take a look at the form to get an idea of what your school will be required to do.

On the application form, you'll need to document at least 10 Green School Points. Emerald Awards require 15 points and  the highest award, Evergreen is 20 points. Please note:

  • Application deadline is March 1, 2022.
  • Do NOT submit the application until January 2022. 
  • Forms must be turned in to your Michigan Green School County Coordinator no later than March 1, 2022 to be eligible.
  • Contact your County Coordinator to verify where the form should be sent and whether they prefer postal mail, fax, or email. 

We offer the form in two formats, as a Word document and as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. It is recommended that MAC users download and use the Word version of the application.


Application - PDF

Application - Microsoft Word


The PDF file allows you to type in your text, or you can print it out and fill it out by hand. The form fill-able PDF will provide check boxes to assist applicant schools in fulfilling the requirements to become a Michigan Green School. You may either print out the completed form and mail/fax it or email the electronic file to your County Coordinator. (Please check with them to see which they prefer.)

PDF files require that Adobe Acrobat Reader or the full version of Adobe Acrobat is installed on your computer. Please make sure that your Adobe Acrobat Reader is up to date before filling out the Michigan Green School PDF application. Your organization may require you to obtain clearance before installing software; please check with your IT or computer tech personnel for assistance.
