Treemendous School Applications closed

Applications to become a Treemendous School in 2019 have now closed and judging has begun.

The ten finalists going through to round two will be announced at the end of July, so make sure to check back in for updates!

The final four winning schools will be announced here in November.

The winning schools will each receive a $10,000 outdoor education space and runner ups will receive $500 towards their project. The Treemendous team will work closely with the winning schools to help create a vision for their outdoor classroom and a planting programme that suits the school environment.

By the end of 2018, the Mazda Foundation and Project Crimson will have worked with 44 schools from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South, planted 31,235 native trees and shrubs and cooked 12,240 sausages for local communities.

The initiative has brought communities together, with thousands of volunteers across the country joining forces to help enhance the learning environments of their local primary and intermediate schools.

We upload photos to the Treemendous website, Mazda NZ Facebook page and videos on our YouTube channel following the events! Make sure to have a look at the incredible learning spaces we have created at the previous winning schools.
