WORLD SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP FOR REFORESTATION
Your chance to give back to our loving planet

We challange students (aged 12-16) to compete in this annual championship with their school class to fundraise as a solution to the crisis of deforestation. Each participating classroom will, through this unique networking opportunity, partner with a student in another region of the globe. These teams will work together with the end goal of realizing the vision of the WSC in another region of the globe. These teams will work together with the end goal of realizing the vision of the WSC, i.e., connecting youths worldwide for direct action to a growing crisis.

The winning team will receive an award, a certificate from the United Nations Environmnet Program (UNEP), and also have an opportunity to travel to the project of their choice!
