Faculty Information

Students meeting with faculty and community experts to develop project proposals.

About Greenlight

We are looking for students who want to make a difference.  This year’s theme, Changemaker 2020, is a behavioral change challenge.  There are many ways to tackle environmental problems and we need many solutions to drive change. We hope students and faculty from all subjects will get involved.

Who should participate?

Students who care about the environment, want to make a difference, and want to experience leadership, teamwork, public speaking, and drive to create something to use in a real-world experience. These are key skills to learn, apply, and add to a college application.

Students designed anti-idling signs and ran awareness and incentive campaign at Horace Greeley High School.


Choose any behavior people aren’t already doing – recycling, taking the bus, turning off lights (there are lists of hundreds of behaviors that are better for the environment) and then do something to get people to act that way.  Students may develop any project to create awareness, inspire or otherwise cause change, and use this project to accomplish behavior change by the Finals in April.

  • Policy/Government – drive change with a new rule
