BC Green Games: Science World's Eco-Storytelling Contest

10 years of BC Green Games

Science World's digital eco-storytelling contest is ten years old!

BC Green Games supports BC teachers and promotes place-based environmental education. This project-style, inquiry-based program is a 21st century learning opportunity in scientific exploration, storytelling, media arts and advocacy.

Between October 1 and April 4, teams can document and submit their green stories, win prizes, and help us celebrate ten years of environmental action with their green achievements!

Submit Your Action Plan

The first step in submitting a project to BC Green Games is submitting an Action Plan!

By submitting an Action Plan, you are outlining the environmental action your team plans to undertake and confirming your spot in BC Green Games. The environmental action your team submits can be something that your team is already working on, a brand new idea, or a combination of both!
