The Maine Partners with IC Bus to Help

Highlight Teen Greening Efforts Across America


NEW YORK, NY (March 8, 2010) – The Maine has partnered with IC Bus, the nation’s leading school bus manufacturer, for the second annual America’s Greenest SchoolSM Contest to help find the greenest school in the country.

The winning school will receive a free concert by The Maine.  In addition to the concert, the winning school will receive a new IC Bus™ hybrid school bus valued at $150,000, a $20,000 green makeover and LEED school audit, and a $3,000 scholarship for the winning entry.

The America’s Greenest School Contest encourages students nationwide to submit a variety of entries, such as a photo collection, music, a video, an essay, or photos of a diorama, collage or piece of artwork, which illustrate the vision for how they’d make their school a greener place. “Since every school bus has the capacity to take 36 cars off the road, school bus transportation is inherently eco-friendly. As part of their contest entry, we would like students to demonstrate how their school is committed to green transportation,” McKinney added. Contest details and entry guidelines are available at or

IC Bus will select ten finalists and America will choose the winner through online voting. The winner will be announced the week of Earth Day 2010.
