How do I participate?

To participate, students and families must first conduct an audit of their homes. In the audit, students may look for air leaks around doors and windows, inefficient lightbulbs, running toilets, high-use faucets, harsh cleaning chemicals, and other opportunities for improved sustainability. 

Next, students and families will use the results of their audit to take a brief survey, which can be completed online or over the phone if internet is not available.
