The Bridges House

Overview

Students and businesses will come together at The Bridges House, 21 Mountain Road, Concord (the New Hampshire Governor's official residence and the "People's House" of New Hampshire!) for our... Green EXPO & Recognition Day.

During the EXPO & Recognition Day Governor Sununu will recognize Youth Sustainability Council students.

If you are a student that cares about nature, your school, the environment, and have been looking for financial support to make a difference in these areas, as well as, in the state of New Hampshire, we want you to pitch us your idea! The Bridges House Green EXPO is a great way to connect like-minded green student, civic, and business leaders across New Hampshire!

Please Note: We encourage teachers/faculty/staff/parents and community leaders to join us at our EXPO as well. 

First Lady Sununu; Robin Organ of Project Green Schools; wonderful NH students, administrators, educators, businesses; and others will gather at The Bridges House for our first ever Green EXPO. We want to build a network and create a platform for access and resources in greening-up schools, businesses, and communities. The path toward a greener and more sustainable future is through community-driven projects, so we are excited to provide support and potential funding for these student initiatives because we know they will be our future leaders and entrepreneurs.

The highlight of the day will be a Shark Tank-like competition where students will present ideas for a sustainability project in their schools and the chance to win up to $2,000 in prize money to help fund the project. Local businesses and food service trucks will be invited to participate as well.

Ideas for projects could be water filling stations, decrease trash, increase recycling, compost program, kitchen garden, energy usage, conservation efforts in their classrooms or communities, and more…
