We know we live in uncertain times, when teens often feel overwhelmed and discouraged. Our Climate Heroes theme was chosen to show teens that the world is full of caring, dedicated people who are committed to finding climate solutions.
Our hope was that Contest participants would feel inspired by selecting and researching a climate hero to celebrate. We wanted students to feel a renewed sense of optimism by learning about the many people doing incredible things to help protect our environment. We wished that, while actively imagining, designing, and creating their pieces, students felt more personally and deeply connected to what they were learning about and experiencing.
