Climate Action Contest

How are YOU fighting for the future of our planet?

The harmful effects of climate change are already upon us and worsening. There is time to act, but we must act now. The Brookings Institute states that investing in girls’ empowerment and education is one of the most effective ways we can combat global warming and reverse course. YOU are a part of the solution, and so in honor of Earth Day we are asking you:

There’s a chance to act now to avert the worst effects of climate change. Young people are leading the effort to push for innovative solutions. How are YOU using your voice to push for climate innovation in your family or your community?

We’ll select our three favorite videos that show and tell us how you are using your voices to push for climate innovation. The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 prize, and the two runners up will each receive $250. And, we’ll share all of your videos to document the strength of your voices in protecting our planet!

Submissions open: April 22 — May 10, 2021 to girls ages 13 years or older
