• Virginia Naturally Schools Recognition Program
     
    VDGIF
    Virginia Naturally Schools is the official environmental education school recognition program of the Commonwealth, administered by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries with support from the Department of Education, Department of Environmental Quality and other resource agencies. The Virginia Board of Education has recognized the Virginia Naturally School program as the official environmental education school recognition program for the state. This program recognizes the wonderful efforts of many Virginia schools to increase the environmental awareness and stewardship of our youngest citizens.
     
    Goal:  To recognize those exemplary efforts undertaken by Virginia schools to increase the environmental awareness and stewardship of its students.
     
    First year schools meeting the minimum requirements will receive a Virginia Naturally plaque.
    Schools maintaining and continuing their efforts in upcoming years will receive a pennant featuring one of Virginia's state symbols to hang in the school. A different pennant will be available for each additional year the school participates. In addition to the annual pennant, schools will be able to choose from a list of workshops that will help continue their effort.
