iCarly and DWTS Celebs Judge for Good

The Green Your School Challenge is over, and now it's time for the judging to begin. More than 5,400 schools got greener through the program. That's a lot of recycling (plus other green stuff). While every school that participated made the world a little greener, only two schools can win the big prize, $5,000 grants.
What's even more exciting then the possibility your school could be $5,000? Knowing your efforts will be evaluated by Samantha Harris of Dancing with the Stars and Nathan Kress of iCarly (maybe Nathan will talk to Samantha through webcam?). One school will be awarded most impact for conservation (shutting off lights, not wasting water) and one school will be awarded most impact for recycling (going beyond throwing your own soda can in the trash).
When Nathan and Samantha sit down to look at all the schools efforts they'll be looking at three criteria. How creative were they with their program? Was there a a line of cardboard arrows leading to each recycling bin? Glee style song and dance numbers in the cafeteria about the importance of turning off the lights when you leave a room? How big was the behavior change? Are students now wired to not even think about throwing a plastic bottle in the regular trash? Are they running to the janitor as soon as they hear a drippy faucet? And finally, how big was their impact? Have the water and electric bills gone down dramatically at the school? 

With all the effort the students of the 5,400 it looks like Nathan and Samantha will have a hard time deciding on only two winners, but they're putting in the time because they care about the environment too.
