Grant applications are being sought by the Royal Borough from schools looking to become greener.
The grants have been made as a result of Greenredeem points donation from Royal Borough residents gained through recycling.
Cllr Carwyn Cox (Con, Hurley and Walthams), cabinet member for environmental services, said: "I am thrilled local schools can benefit from residents' generously donating their Greenredeem points.
"Through the spot prizes smaller schools are also in with a chance to 'win' through Greenredeem points. And the more residents recycle, the more Greenredeem points they can earn."
Last year Eton Wick CE First School, in Sheepcote Road, received a grant of £1,000 to enhance its environmental area 'Zone Bee'.
The winners will be chosen in the 2015 summer term, with first place receiving £1,500, second place receiving £1,000 and third place receiving £500.
