TREEmendous School Applications Closed

Applications to become a TREEmendous School in 2020 have now closed!

The judges are busy deliberating and will announce the ten finalists going through to round two at the end of July, so make sure you check back here for updates.

Round two applications close on October 25 and the final four winning schools will be announced here in November.

The winning schools will each receive $10,000 towards creating the outdoor learning space of their dreams and the six runner ups will receive $500 towards their projects. The TREEmendous team will work closely with the winning schools to help create a plan and planting programme that suits each school’s unique environment.

By the end of 2019, the Mazda Foundation and Project Crimson will have worked with 49 schools from all over the country, planted over 40,000 native trees and shrubs and cooked over 20,000 sausages for hungry volunteers.

We upload photos to the TREEmendous website, Mazda NZ Facebook page and videos on our YouTube channel following the events! Make sure you check out the incredible learning spaces we have created at schools over the past 11 years.
