Whether your school has been part of the programme for years or are new to STARS we want to hear about the amazing things you have achieved. To receive a STARS Top Schools Award you'll need to have done something a bit special.

Maybe your project was really creative or innovative, or maybe you've got powerful evidence that you  changed the way people travel. Maybe you just started on STARS and brought a new energy to it, or did  something that inspired others make changes .

If you're proud of what you and your students have done, or if you're an impressed parent or carer, put in a nomination for your school.
