Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
Local 20/20 is proud to be sponsoring X PRIZE $2000, a competition between teams of students at Port Townsend High School. Students who opt to participate will work with a team on a project intended to promote some aspect of community resilience – something supportive of Local 20/20’s mission statement:
Working together toward local sustainability and resilience – integrating ecology, economy and community through action and education.
Winners will be decided by a panel of local judges. The top two teams selected will each win half of the $2000 prize.
If this program is a success, the hope is that next year it will expand to Chimacum High School.
What better way to engage our local community in issues of resilience than by engaging our younger generation? Tomorrow’s leaders. Join us in celebrating this opportunity by encouraging as many students as possible to participate.
If teams wish to participate but need help choosing an appropriate project, here is a list of possible ideas to build on…
