Planet Connect Project!

To my 14-19 year old audience:

Planet Connect, a social media site about environmental issues for high school students, is holding a really neat contest that I want everyone to know about.

If you and your friends come up with a new and creative idea of how to help the environment in your community or school, you could receive $1,000 and an environment-related internship! I think this is such a fun contest!

Some ideas I was thinking for my home town:

-New, fun environmental education for elementary schoolers

-Local foods in the cafeteria, or a local food bake sale (to educate people about the benefits of eating local and possibly highlight some CSAs nearby)

-Calculate the carbon footprint of an average person at your school, how you could reduce it, and find cool ways to educate

-A publicity campaign to tell people why it’s important to be involved with the environment and help out

-A short film to show at your school

The ideas are endless!

I know this isn’t like my usual posts, but I think it’s a good thing to get you thinking about something YOU can do, and in this case, potentially see a really cool reward for yourself and your city.

Happy brainstorming!
