Marianas School Pride Campaign
With improving the quality of life in The Marianas comes the responsibility of inspiring students of the Marianas to take pride in where they live, learn, and play. Marianas School Pride aims to positively educate, inform, inspire, and encourage action by the Marianas Youth. It motivates students to lead beautification efforts for their school and surrounding community facilities. Students become advocates for environmental stewardship as well as school pride & unity through numerous acts of service to the community.
Be a part of MSP by Participating in these Activities and Programs
ADVISOR & AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
Through our Advisor & Ambassador Program, all participating schools are to appoint advisor(s) as a point of contact. Advisors are to select 2-5 students to serve as MSP Student Ambassadors to take ownership of their school’s MSP program and projects and establish school values.Under this MSP program, Student Ambassadors from their respective schools/student organizations/clubs will take lead to identify and manage beautification projects in their schools. Ambassadors can download and fill in the form below and submit their proposals to the GCEA for review. Beautification projects should identify the unique needs and solutions at the school level and requires commitment for maintenance by the school.
For every project completed and every student volunteer hour rendered, schools will earn points for awards at the end of the school year. Cash prizes will be given to the top-ranking schools with the most points!
Schools can earn points for simply participating in the contests. In addition, points will be earned for every entry, volunteer hour completed, and winning entry!
Encouraging Marianas School Pride starts by ensuring that our campuses are clean and safe. Show your pride and respect for your school campus by submitting a proposal for a school beautification project and earn points towards cash prizes!
Examples of beautification projects include picking up trash on the campus, cleaning and painting curbs, sidewalks, medians, or crosswalks; installing a garden or new landscaping; painting; or other unique efforts to make your school a cleaner or more beautiful place to learn.
