How to win a medal
To win a medal for this activity, you need to make a real and
practical difference in your school. You need to show us that
people in your school have now changed their behaviour because of
all your hard work and enthusiasm.
There are two sets of criteria for winning a medal, depending on
whether you fill in an audit form or not. Let's talk about filling
in an audit form first.
Filling in audit forms
We ask you to fill in two audit forms when you run an activity:
one at the beginning of the activity and one at the end. We use the
data you enter to measure the improvement you have made in your
school between your first audit and your final audit.
If you have made a big improvement in your school, you stand a
much better chance of winning a gold medal. You are also more
likely to win a gold if your school's final performance is
excellent, for example, if you are now wasting little or no energy,
water or carbon or if you have filled all of your school loft with
Your audit scores account for exactly 50% of your final medal
score. The other 50% is based on the effort and enthusiasm you put
into your blog
An excellent blog would be regularly updated with lots of posts
and comments. It would have between 5 and 15 posts, containing
plenty of video, audio or image files and at least one Lessons
If your audit scores are excellent and your blog is brilliant,
then you are far more likely to win a gold medal overall!
