Ways to earn points

Earn points by doing activities that relate to one of SFUSD’s five sustainability goals. Remember to take a few photos of your activity so you can share them with us later to get points.


You have free reign over the kind of sustainability activities you want to do. We welcome activities big or small and encourage you to get creative in finding ways to integrate more sustainability into your school day.


In fact, the creativity from schools is one of our favorite parts of the Challenge. Take a look at some examples from schools, and you’ll see why!

But sometimes, having ready-to-go resources are also helpful. That’s why we’ve gathered all types of FREE sustainability activities for you to easily find something that interests you.


Browse through by type of activity, and you’ll find a lists with short descriptions, grades targeted, and links to resources or contact information to schedule.
