The challenge runs for six weeks, from Wednesday October 11 to November 22, 2023.
How it works
Each week, you'll dive into a new theme: general greenhouse gas emissions, energy, food, transportation, waste, and Indigenous stewardship. We'll send you helpful information about these topics and effective strategies to reduce emissions and make a difference.
You’ll be presented with a challenge that tests your knowledge of each theme and encourages you to take action to reduce your emissions. For every weekly challenge you tackle, you get a shot at $350 and an entry into the $1,000 grand prize draw. Complete all six challenges, and that's six chances at the grand prize.
Your participation increases the likelihood of your college or institute winning a bursary. Based on the highest participation, four colleges and institutes—each representing a distinct size category—will earn a $3,000 bursary for a student climate leader.
Who can enter
The contest is exclusively for students, staff, and faculty at CICan member colleges and institutes.
