The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is calling for applications for its Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools (IAQ TfS) competitive awards.

The IAQ TfS National Excellence Award, the IAQ TfS National Model of Sustained Excellence Award, and the new National IAQ TfS Connector Award are presented to school IAQ champions that have shown exceptional commitment to IAQ management and the health of students, faculty, and staff.

The winners of EPA's prestigious IAQ TfS awards will be honored at the tenth annual IAQ TfS National Symposium, to be held January 14-16, 2010.

EPA also offers the National Great Start and Leadership Awards, noncompetitive awards designed to recognize schools and school districts that are on their way to achieving sustainable IAQ-management plans. Applications for these awards are accepted year-round.
