Cleanest High School Challenge


Did you know that all schools are part of the Coastal Zone?

While there are academic competitions and sports which respectively highlight the importance of education and health inside the classroom and on the football fields, basketball, and volleyball courts, local high schools have been engaged in a different competition which highlights environmental health through the value and pride that comes with having a clean school environment—from inside the classroom and other school facilities, to outside the surrounding campus grounds.

The Department of Commerce hosted a competition for high schools to show their school pride in keeping their campus grounds and facilities debris free and clean! Check out the winners from last year’s competition.

ASCMP plans to continue this effort in the future and encourages high schools to take pride in a clean campus and continue to keep their campuses clean, inside and outside of the classroom.
