Student Action Challenge

Take the Climate and Environment Student Action Challenge!

Do you have an idea for a project that could reduce the environmental footprint of your school? Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) could help make it happen!

The Climate and Environment Student Action Challenge invites Alberta students from kindergarten to grade 12 to develop a school-based initiative or project that will address climate change or minimize other negative human impacts to the environment.

Students are invited to submit their project idea for a chance to win one of 10 grants (maximum of $1,000) that can be used to turn their proposal into a reality – and give them hands-on experience tackling an environmental issue that directly impacts them, their school or their community. Successful applicants will be selected from each school level (Division 1, 2, 3, 4).

Then get ready to join the online learning community! All successful applicants will be able to post photos or videos of their school in action. Share tips; ask questions; inspire new levels of learning - the provincial Climate and Environment Student Action Challenge community is a great way to explore new ideas throughout the school year.
