Schools' Challenge

Schools' Challenge

This March, students across the country are competing to win $5,000 or $1,000 prizes for their school in the Change Our 2morrow (CO2) Schools’ Challenge. The winning schools will be determined based on the highest percentage of pledge list or carbon calculator completions during the challenge, from March 1 - 31. Click here for help with the Pledge List and Carbon Calculator.

What can you do to Make an Impact?

  1. Ask your family and friends to complete the Make an Impact pledge list (one per person) or carbon calculator (one per household).
  2. Remember everyone plays a role: family, neighbors, teachers, and friends from other communities. Get creative and engage as many people as possible in reducing their carbon footprint. 
  3. If you are from a participating school, use the various materials that you have received to learn about and measure the energy efficiency of things around your home or classroom.
  4. Use email, Facebook or Twitter (tag @TweetanImpact or #MAICO2) to ask your friends and family to visit Make an Impact website and complete the carbon calculator.
