In celebration of International Development Week, the ACT 4 Global Change Challenge is a competition for elementary schools from across the Atlantic region. Teachers and students are challenged to complete the most ACTivities for global change from February 1 to February 28. The school who completes the most ACTivities during this time will win a cash prize of $500 to put towards a TAKE ACTION project of their choice.
The ACT 4 Global Change Challenge is a way to encourage students to be ACTive global citizens AND a way for teachers to complement curriculum with activities to help meet learning outcomes.
Our ACT 4 Global Change Ambassadors serve to inspire others to ACT as global citizens, and may be available to provide support to schools participating in the ACT 4 Global Change Challenge, via a live Skype conversation with a class of students, for example.
