Since last fall, regional high school students have been hard at work developing and implementing projects to address an environmental problem and catalyze behavior change. After receiving feedback from expert judges at the proposal showcase in December, teams received the “green light” to put their projects into action. At this finals event, students will be presenting to panels of expert judges and competing for a $500 prize and the Greenlight Award.

 

16 teams are preparing to present their projects at the Finals. Projects include:

Let There Be Light
Powering Families Towards Sustainability
Greenburgh Curbside Composting
Greenlight Recycled Art Show
Plastic for Art
EcoTouch
