BC Green Games

If you’re a BC K–12 teacher or student who is carrying out an environment-oriented team project in your school or community, we invite you to join Science World’s BC Green Games. Our contest gives you the chance to document and share your green stories, win prizes, and celebrate your team’s greenest achievements!

Share Your School's Eco-Action Project!

For more than 10 years, Science World’s BC Green Games, developed in partnership with the BC Ministry of Education, has been promoting place-based ecological education and environmental action in elementary and secondary schools all over BC. This exciting initiative encourages students and teachers to carry out, document, and share locally relevant environment-oriented actions, from campaigns lowering plastic use or promoting energy conservation to recycling initiatives and community-stewardship programs.

The BC Green Games’ many fantastic prizes, awarded by community judges, Science World staff, and program sponsors, include sleepovers at Science World, trips to a leadership camp, and cash prizes of up to $2,500. Your team could even win the chance to help paint a mural on the TELUS World of Science walls (complete, of course, with a free field trip to Science World)!

The BC Green Games run from October to April, with project submission (via video or photo essay) beginning mid-January. This is your chance to feel the energy of thousands of people like you acting together to help the environment, and to share your own school’s eco-action story. When you and your school choose to take part in the games, you are joining hundreds of other teams from around the province as we celebrate all the amazing creativity, ingenuity, and hard work that go into every project.

We can't wait to see your green ideas come to life!

Projects must be student-led or have a high level of student involvement.

Developed in collaboration with the BC Ministry of Education, the Environmental Educators Provincial Specialist Association (EEPSA), and the North Vancouver and Richmond school districts.
