Our daughter just entered an application into this eco-grant program…she is doing a school composter project. We are excited to think there are organizations out there rewarding our youth to think of creative solutions to solve environmental problems. Put together by The Weather Channel and the National Environmental Education Foundation as a part of Classroom Earth, they’re looking for smart, innovative, and workable solutions to pressing environmental issues:
Planet Connect is a new online network for High School students to learn about the environment plus green college and career options.
We’re looking for your creative ideas to fix an environmental problem at your school or in your community.
Planet Connect is offering grant winners $1,000 awards with $500 to support your idea and $500 for an environmental internship in your community.
Apply before January 20, 2009!
And get this; they’ll even pay you a cash stipend for being a local environmental intern to go along with the seed money you’ll receive to help make it happen!
