We want to hear about your environmental project at your school to celebrate Earth Day 2012.

Nickelodeon’s The Big Help Greens Your School wants to see kid-led green projects and there are great prizes for the best submissions.

Teachers, principals, and school administrators! Here’s your chance to get some green love from Nick and bring some excitement to kids in your community. Tell us what your school is planning or has done as a project to help the environment. Please don’t be shy about sending photos and videos to help tell us your story.

Ten projects will receive a $1,000 spot grants to help take their environmental project to the next level. Five projects will receive “shout outs” on Nickelodeon and/or Nick.com and one project will be chosen for a visit by Nickelodeon. In order to be considered for a visit from Nick your project must take place between April 1 and 14.

Elementary, middle and high schools (public and private) and after-school community-based programs with 501(c)(3) status in the US are eligible.
