Youth Competition: California Climate Champions

California Climate Champions for youth 16-18 who promote green solutions

Find green business solutions
Gold medallion for recognition In partnership with the British Council, the California Air Resources Board is sponsoring a competition to identify California Climate Champions. This program will engage young people as communicators who will help to influence and educate their peers, as well as the general public, on the urgency of climate change.

Entries are due Feb. 11, 2008, via the program website at

A poster with competition information can be found at

Competition Details: Through an audio, video or written entry, young people aged 16-18 can apply to become California Climate Champions. Their entries will explain their interest in addressing climate change and detail how they might make a difference in their schools, neighborhoods, communities or other organizations to which they might belong.

Entries should take the form of a news report, which will help applicants demonstrate their communication abilities and their passion about addressing climate change. A panel will evaluate the entries and select 20 that show the most enthusiasm, commitment, ability to communicate and creativity as the winning entries. These winning entrants will be named California Climate Champions.

California Climate Champions will be “in office” from February 2008 until August 2009, and will participate in a range of activities to help communicate about the issue. This will include setting up an online peer network, to share ideas and to engage others in helping to make a difference at local, regional and state levels.

In addition, three of the champions will be selected to represent the United States at two international meetings during 2008. These three champions will travel to London at the end of March for a meeting with champions from other countries where they will learn more about how to address climate change, and to plan for their participation in a “youth summit” part of the G8 Environment Ministers’ meeting in Kobe, Japan in mid-May. These three champions will work with their fellow champions in California to engage other young people with the activities undertaken in London and Kobe, primarily through online networks and communities.

This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to show leadership and commitment for one of the most pressing issues of our time. We hope you will encourage your students to participate.
