Are you a high school student who cares about the environment?
If so, you could win a free trip to Costa Rica this April to study environmental sustainability, with the weeklong program culminating in an environmental summit with former Vice President and climate activist Al Gore.
EF Education First, an international education company with North American headquarters in Cambridge, is holding a contest for 20 students - most from Massachusetts – to join 1,000 other students in a Global Student Leadership Summit.
Students will spend six days exploring sustainability efforts in Costa Rica and learning about tropical ecology, wildlife conservation and reforestation. In the “action-based” program, some students will help with Mangrove reforestation on the Central Pacific Coast or learn about turtle conservation in Tortuguero National Park, among other trips. At the end of the trip a two-day conference in San Jose will include Gore and Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.
Here’s how to apply:
1. Choose an environmental issue you are passionate about.
2. Create a video, digital media project or essay to answer this: What are the global implications of this issue? What ideas do you have to address this issue? Why do you want to be part of a team working on a solution?
Then submit it to EF’s facebook page by the end of the month.
Her is an example of a previous entry for a different EF program.
