Chipotle and Earth Force are empowering young minds to make lasting changes in their communities with the Sustainability Challenge. It is up to youth to choose a project that will positively impact their community, like requesting their school district to shift to local buyers to support more organic land or create local composting initiatives to improve their neighborhood's soil health. It's time for a new generation to design lasting changes to their communities, local economies, and the environment. Young people can receive funding to carry out their projects and the top submissions have the chance to win up to $1,000.

Young people will research their food system and find an issue to address, then create an Action Plan to identify how they will ask for a change. They can receive up to $500 to carry it out! Action plan funding is first-come, first-serve with only completed submissions eligible. The first 100 complete submissions will also receive an extra $100. Then, once you're ready to share what you did to make your food system more sustainable, you will submit your Action Story for a chance to win up to $1,000 in prize money! Top 1-15 submissions receive $1,000 and the top 16-30 submissions receive $500. As young people carry out their plans, they should make sure to document the journey. This will become the Action Story. Get creative - film a video, take photos, create a journal, make a presentation, or something new!

A team of experts will review each Action Story submission. See competition website for full rubric.
