Please respect all school and governmental guidelines and restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Review the 2021 CEDC COVID-19 policy here. This challenge does NOT require students to participate in an in-person event. For example, students can participate in a virtual initiative hosted by an organization (such WWF’s Sweater Day), or can create an initiative in which they engage their community through the teacher’s or school’s social media or a letter writing campaign (for example, encouraging members of the community to walk or bike to school or work instead of taking a car).
