Deadline: January 19, 2010 - Scholastic.com
Scholastic.com is offering up to $30,000 to winning middle and high
school students participating in an environmental contest.
The Lexus Eco Challenge is a nationwide environmental education program
and contest that empowers teens to create a better world. Through the
program, middle and high school students can participate in two initial
environmental challenges: land & water and air & climate. The challenges
call for teams of 5-10 students and one teacher-advisor to define an
issue, make a plan to address the issue, implement the plan, and report
the results online. Finalists from these challenges will receive $10,000
and be eligible to participate in the final challenge, in which they can
receive up to $30,000. Each challenge has a separate entry deadline:
November 6, 2009 (land and water), January 19, 2010 (air and climate),
and March 12, 2010 (final).
