U.S Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Title and Logo
ED's award is called "U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools" and has a "District Sustainability Award" and "Postsecondary" category. "Green Ribbon Schools" without the "U.S. Department of Education" is not ED's award, but instead is a separate program overseen by another organization. A selected school is a "Year U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School." A selected district is a "Year U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools District Sustainability Awardee." There is no "National" or "Program" in the title.
U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools (ED-GRS) awardees are permitted to display their status using the ED-GRS logo and the year in which they received the award. They may not at any time display the logo or advertise their ED-GRS status without using the year in which the award was received. Each title must be displayed with the year of the award. If there are any questions about the manner in which you would like to display this logo or your ED- Green Ribbon School status, please feel free to email: ED.Green.Ribbon.Schools@ed.gov
Please note that the logo is not offered to the public in any other formats.
