"The Green Connection" Initiative for High School Students
The Green Connection is an initiative of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States allowing American high school students to participate in an educational and scientific trip to France focusing on ecology and the environment, from July 2 to July 13, 2012.
Participants are selected through a national competition where candidates submit proposals for local or personal projects in the field of environmental protection. Each proposal will be in the form of a short audiovisual presentation (maximum length of 4 minutes) showing the student’s interest in environmental issues and his or her commitment to environmental protection.

Teachers have to fill out an application (one per class) and submit the form by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2012.
