The Changemaker 2020 Challenge is Here
High school students, get at least 20 people to change their behavior 20 times to benefit the environment.


Tell us your idea for a tool (a campaign, creation, event, invention, policy or project) and how you will use it to get at least 20 people in our community to repeatedly do something differently to have a positive impact on our environment.

The best proposals receive up to $1,000 and a "green light" to do the project. Finalists compete to have the most impact and to win $500 and the Greenlight Award.
