One Month Left to Submit!
There is one month left to submit your BC Green Games projects! Projects are due by midnight on March 1.
By submitting your eco-action story, you are joining hundreds of teams from around the province as we celebrate a decade of BC Green Games, and all the amazing creativity, ingenuity and hard work that has gone into every project. We can't wait to see how your green ideas have come to life!
Need a bit more inspiration? Check out the Galleries!
Don't forget to book your field trip!
All teams that register and submit a project are invited to enjoy a free field trip at their nearest science centre between March 1 and the end of the school year.
Participating Science Centres:
- Science World at TELUS World of Science
- The Exploration Place
- The BIG Little Science Centre
- The Okanagan Science Centre
If your team is coming to Science World, please fill out the field trip form. Write 'BCGG' in the comments to avoid being charged.
If your team will be attending a field trip at a science centre other than Science World, please contact us.
The Call2Recycle Viewers' Choice Award
The Call2Recycle Viewers' Choice Award is a friendly voting competition that opens up as soon as your team has submitted your project.
How it works:
- When you upload your project, you can begin your Call2Recycle Viewers' Choice Award campaign by encouraging your school, parents and community to vote on your project.
- Viewers can vote once per hour, per IP address. Since Schools share an IP address, try waiting at least ten minutes between votes in the same day.
- The four teams with the most votes by March 31 at midnight will be awarded a $500 prize for their school.

Call2Recycle is North America’s first and largest battery stewardship program. As a non-profit organization, they collect and recycle batteries at no cost for municipalities, businesses and consumers. Call2Recycle has diverted more than 39 million kilograms of batteries and cellphones from the solid waste stream and established over 34,000 collection sites throughout Canada and the US. It is the first program of its kind to receive the Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2) certification.
