The 2012 Go Green Youth Challenge

Ready or not, that time is here again.  Time once again to collect coins for the Go Green Youth Challenge.

For those who don’t know, the Go Green Youth Challenge is a statewide initiative to engage youth in environmental stewardship, service learning and community development.  K-12 students collect coins to fund tree plantings across Michigan.  Students can participate as individuals or as a group.  Groups of any size are encouraged to participate.  Prizes are awarded at the end of the Challenge and are based on group size and the amount raised.  The group that raises the most money wins our Grand Prize – a tree planting in their community and an invitation to the State Arbor Day Celebration at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing.

The 2012 Challenge begins Monday, January 16th and runs until April 9th.  Additional information about the program as well as downloadable start up materials are available on the Michigan Arbor Day Alliance website.  If you have any questions about the Go Green Youth Challenge email us at gogreenyouthchallenge@gmail.com or call (517) 543-5848 extension 114.

So, do you have what it takes to take on the Challenge?
