RISE Challenge Spring Support Series: Action Story Prep
March 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Colorado Educators: looking for ways to involve your students in improving their community + receive funding for student environmental civic action projects? Join the RISE Challenge! This spring support session will help you start the Challenge and engage in quick planning to get your students to action!
The RISE Challenge creates a generation of citizens with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to improve community resilience to natural disasters.
Guided by a step-by-step process, students research their communities to determine vulnerabilities to natural disasters and the local policies or practices affecting them. Then, they develop and implement plans to improve the vulnerabilities. And, they have the chance to win up to $1,000 in prize money!
