Pureology and Global Green USA announced the winner of the Green School Makeover Competition. The winner of the grand prize is The Texas School for the Deaf (TSD). The school will receive the ultimate Green School Makeover worth $130,000, while four runner-up schools will receive $2,500 each to be used toward sustainability upgrades. TSD was informed about the competition by Francisco’s Salon in Austin, TX, who thought that the school would be an ideal match for the green intiative. With more than 220 schools competing, the panel of judges had their work cut out for them, but TSD made the biggest impact and will now receive the ultimate makeover including, school renovations and technical assistance. “Pureology is proud to support Global Green USA and present the Green School Makeover Competition to help improve the lives of students while educating parents, teachers, students, and the public about the importance of creating healthy green classrooms,” says Shae Kalyani, vice president of marketing for Pureology. “We are thrilled The Texas School for the Deaf won and are looking forward to seeing the outcome for all of the winning schools!” To view the winning entries and learn more about green initiatives please visit www.globalgreen.org/greenschools.
