Grant Program Aims to Help Hawaiʻi Students Go Green
Hawaiʻi students who want to promote sustainability in their schools and communities can now apply for funding to back their big ideas.
The Hawaiʻi Youth Sustainability Challenge, a partnership between Kupu and the Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation that supports student-led environmental initiatives, is accepting applications until Oct. 19.
Students in grades 6 to 12 from public, private, and charter schools statewide are encouraged to apply.
“Not only is this a great experience for Hawai‘i’s next generation of eco-preneurs and eco-engineers, but it’s also a win for the community at large,” Kupu CEO John Leong said in a press release.
“We have seen so many students generate innovative and effective projects that address pressing environmental issues. We can’t wait to see what our future leaders come up with this year.”
Last school year, the program provided a total of $19,015 in project-grants to 29 teams across 23 schools.
