Celebrate Student Achievements at the Annual Maryland Green Schools Youth Summit

Location: Sandy Point State Park

The Maryland Green Schools Youth Summit provides a fantastic opportunity for both students and teachers to explore local environmental programs and connect with valuable resource providers.

At the summit, we will be celebrating the achievements of new and recertifying Green Schools and Green Centers. Whether or not you’re receiving an award, attendees will engage in a day of hands-on learning through youth leadership activities, a green career and environmental literacy fair, and opportunities to reconnect with nature. It's a day filled with hands-on learning, knowledge sharing, information exchange, and a chance to reconnect with nature.

The park’s capacity is 3,000 attendees, and our goal is to welcome as many schools as possible. All Maryland schools are invited, with a nominal fee of just $2/person (including students, staff, and chaperones). For groups exceeding 100 participants, please email applications@maeoe.org.
