Established by the 1990 National Environmental Education Act, the President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) program promotes awareness of natural resources among our nation’s youth and encourages positive community involvement. Each year, the PEYA program honors a wide variety of environmental-focused projects developed by young individuals, school classes (kindergarten through high school), summer camps, and youth organizations to promote the greater need for environmental stewardship and protection.
Also established by the 1990 National Environmental Education Act, PIAEE supports, encourages, and nationally honors outstanding kindergarten through high school educators who integrate environmental and place-based, experiential learning into school curricula and school facility management across the country. The PIAEE program seeks to recognize, support, and bring public attention to the outstanding environmental projects performed by these innovative teachers who go beyond textbook instruction to incorporate methods and materials that utilize creative experiences and enrich student learning.
