Environmental Student Action Challenge

Lisa C. Community, Settlement & Community News, Updates

Alberta students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 are invited to develop a school-based project to address environmental concerns that directly impact them, their school or their community.

Students are invited to submit their project ideas for a chance to receive up to $1,000 that can be used to

  • turn their proposal into a reality
  • give them hands-on experience tackling an environmental issue

The project can be anything you can think of! For instance,

  • plant trees
  • build an outdoor classroom
  • send local seed kits home, and many more!

The Government of Alberta will award up to $15,000 in funding annually to successful applicants to support their environmental action projects.

The application deadline is October 18, 2020 at 4:30 pm (MST). Late applications will not be accepted.

Words of the Day:

Hands-on: requiring active participation and practical experience.
