Greenlight Award Contest Timeline
The Greenlight Award will start its 6th year with virtual kickoff sessions and support for students working remotely.
This high school contest inspires local students to develop and carry forward a project that is a part of our community goals for Climate Action Now. It is a great learning and leadership experience.
What is the Greenlight Award Contest?
In this Oct-April program, students come up with an advocacy or innovation project that has the potential to ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our community. With community expert feedback, the teams develop a proposal for their project and pitch it to our judges. Kind of like Shark Tank. Once their idea has been evaluated, students have an opportunity to get funding to carry the project forward, evaluate it’s potential impact, and present their results before a panel of judges at the finals in April. Winners receive cash prizes and the Greenlight Award.
So, get a team together, find an advisor, and sign up for more info!
