Forecast Earth Summit for High School Students: Get Your Voice Heard!
If you're a high school student with ideas for protecting the environment you'd like to see put into action, The Weather Channel just announced its Forecast Earth Summit, and it might be a great chance to get your voice heard by some of the top minds in the country. Essentially, they're offering 20 students from across America the opportunity to network and engage with their expert climatologist Dr. Heidi Cullen, as well as a number of other environmental leaders, enthusiasts and scientists during their upcoming three day summit.
And while it's not clear who all else will be there, it certainly does seem like an interesting opportunity to take an in-depth look at the environment with the folks at The Weather Channel.
To qualify, you've got to submit a 200-word essay explaining why you are so passionate about the environment, and outlining what personal efforts you've engaged in to make the planet "clean and green." And I can certainly think of a couple of outstanding examples of youth making a difference, pointed out here, here and here.
The deadline is November 11th, so if you think you've got what it takes you'd better get moving on it!
