Human population growth exacerbates many of the innumerable challenges facing our global society. Taking on these complex challenges and finding solutions will require understanding, cooperation and creativity. This contest challenges middle and high school students to create their own inspirational videos about solutions to global challenges associated with population growth. Students submit there videos online to be eligible for awards and other opportunities.
