The Earth Prize is a global $200,000 environmental sustainability competition for students between the ages of 13 and 19 that will reward the teams whose projects and ideas have the most potential to address environmental issues.

Participants in The Earth Prize will have access to mentoring by university students and to bespoke learning materials covering key environmental sustainability concepts and featuring young change-makers from around the world such as Boyan Slat or Sam Teicher.

Participants' ideas will be reviewed by The Earth Prize Adjudicating Panel, a panel of highly renowned experts chaired by Rina Kupferschmid-Rojas, the Chief Sustainability Officer at Fidelity Investments. This panel will then select the 10 finalist teams, and eventually, The Earth Prize Winner and Runners-up.

To participate, students will need to register with a supervisor, who can be a teacher or school administrator. Once registered, participants must confirm their registration by filling out a short team motivation letter and a simple problem definition form. This will give their teams access to the Submissions Phase of the competition in which they can start working on their ideas. Participants will then have until January 31st, 2022 to finalize and send in their submissions. All participants whose ideas reach outstanding standards will be recognized as The Earth Prize Scholars. The Earth Prize Adjudicating Panel will then select the 10 finalist teams from the pool of Scholars. At The Earth Prize Ceremony, on March 26th, 2022, the Adjudicating Panel will select The Earth Prize Winner and Runners-up.
