High School Contest to Catalyze Change

Over the past 5 years, over 100 students from 10 different high schools have taken action in their communities with support from the Greenlight Award Program.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pitch a Big Green Idea: Greenlight Award contestants create a proposal and pitch a big green advocacy or innovation idea to address climate change.
  • Greenlight Go! The best ideas receive funding and support to help our community reach its climate action goals. 
  • Showcase Impact: In the spring students showcase their results and compete to win the Greenlight Award and $500 cash.
