    Are you looking for ideas to engage middle or high school students in your course content or club activities? Consider participating in the New Jersey Student Climate Challenge. It is free and open to all New Jersey public schools serving students in grades 6 to 12. Teachers register to participate and integrate the Climate Challenge into their classroom or club activities. Students identify and complete a school or community project to address a cause or impact of climate change. The students then create a short digital story video to highlight what they have accomplished. To support and inspire student action, educational sessions will be offered for students and teachers.

    Student Sessions

    New Jersey experts and student activists will discuss case studies of local climate action and share the resources available to support student action.

    Teacher Professional Development

    Expert teacher educators will guide teachers from across content areas on ways to identify the big ideas of climate change and to integrate those climate concepts into the curriculum using high-quality (and free) educational resources.

    Get Recognized

    Schools with first, second and third place winners will receive a grant ranging from $2,500 to $500 to advance their climate education initiatives. The students and their teachers will be recognized at an awards ceremony hosted by the Drumthwacket Foundation with the New Jersey Governor and First Lady.
