Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies

All grant recipients are required to notify Sustainable Jersey for Schools of any grant project-related events so that media outreach can be coordinated with Sustainable Jersey for Schools and the appropriate funder. The purpose of these events is to celebrate the school or district's accomplishment in completing the grant project and to highlight the benefits of the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program.

Holding a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony?

For example, a sign could say "This project was funded by the PSEG Foundation through a Sustainable Jersey for Schools grant."
