In 2011, ATREE and the Khoshoo Endowment Fund and ATREE flagged off the first TN Khoshoo Ecology and Environment Award for Schools. The award was designed in partnership with The Teacher Foundation, Wipro, IAIM-FRLHT and Pravah. This award aims to seed environmental consciousness at a young, impressionable age, and thereby, prioritise conservation thought and action in routine decision making by the next generation. The award will be given to schools for catalysing environmental thought and action among its students.

2010-2011, the first year of the TN Khoshoo Ecology and Environment Award for Schools, has been a success. The award was launched in Delhi and Bengaluru earlier in the year 2010. Coordinating organisations - Pravah, in Delhi, and ATREE, in Bengaluru, started their interactions with schools in July 2010, briefing schools on the long-term objectives of the school awards, and guiding them through the processes for participation.
The efforts of the students, schools and the organisers were showcased in interactive Environment Melas in Delhi and Bengaluru on 24th January and 28th February 2011 respectively. The winners of TN Khoshoo Ecology and Environment Awards for Schools 2011 were announced here.

The criteria for winning were impact, sustainability of the idea, replicability, and creativity. It was also obvious that the participants were very passionate about the work that they had done. Salwan Public School, Rajinder Nagar, Delhi, and K K High School, Varthur, Bengaluru bagged first place; and Father Agnel School from Gautam Nagar, Delhi, Sri Vani Education Centre (SVEC), Basaveshwarnagar, Bengaluru, won second place for their projects.
