Each year, NQBP helps local students to grow their knowledge and love for the environment through ten $1,000 school grants for sustainability projects.
Primary and high schools located in or adjacent to our port communities including Hay Point, Mackay, Bowen and Weipa are invited to apply.
Applications are now closed for 2018 and recipients will be announced by the end of May.
We look forward to seeing local students beginning their projects to help make their community a better place to live!
There’s no one type of initiative, rather the grants are designed to support a range of grassroots projects that engage young people and work to create awareness, understanding and appreciation for the environment - it’s that simple!
From permaculture through to recycling, implementing eco-friendly cutlery in school canteens, building chicken coops, planting sustainable kitchen gardens and environmental monitoring initiatives - the grants have supported all types of inventive projects in the past.
