The Broward County Air Quality Program, in partnership with the Broward County School Board, launched its fourth annual Conservation and Climate Change (C3) Challenge. This educational competition is intended to engage students, teachers, school administrators, staff and parents in practical actions to reduce their carbon footprint at school and at home.

Through improved energy efficiency, reduced consumption, increased recycling and changes in transportation behaviors, participants will learn how simple actions, taken together, can create a climate of change.

Schools can use the C3 Challenge Toolkits to learn how to take the challenge and use the educational activities to teach students, parents and school administrators about the role we all play in climate protection. All of the educational activities in the toolkits are aligned with the "Next Generation Sunshine State Standards" and can be downloaded free at broward.org/pollutionprevention. Schools can register by emailing airoutreach@broward.org.

Schools will be judged based on the percentage of participating teachers, share your story submittals and on-site evaluation. Elementary, middle and high schools with the highest score will receive a variety of eco-friendly prizes and be recognized by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners. The competition ends February 8, 2013.
