Are you passionate about the environment and the future?
We love your ideas!
This year’s Innovation Challenge theme is all about the environment, impact on the environment, and sustainability:
My Planet, My Neighborhood
Innovation is about big ideas, creativity, and problem-solving. Think about an environmental issue in your community or in the world that concerns you.
It can be that you’re worried about severe weather patterns or rising sea levels.
Maybe you’re concerned about pollution, clean water, or food scarcity.
Or perhaps you’re more interested in helping endangered species and disease prevention.
Answer the questions below to register for the Innovation Challenge. Then, make sure to submit your full proposal by11:59 PM (ET) on November 30, 2021 via email to email@example.com. You can send us questions to that email, too.
NOTE: Parents or legal guardians should submit the registration form. Enter the student's name, and agree to the Terms and Conditions below to confirm that you are abiding by these rules.
Stride and The Nature Conservancy encouraged students in grades 9–12 to solve some of our planet’s most pressing environmental issues in the Innovation Challenge. This year’s theme was My Planet, My Neighborhood. The national winner will get $1,000 donated to an environmental charity in their name, a $1,000 Amazon e-gift card, and so much more. Applications are closed, semi-finalists will be announced in January.
