This new contest is looking for people like you, who care about the planet. Present your unique solution to environmental problems by entering this competition and change how we look at waste.


To encourage young people to explore, investigate, research and undertake an environmental sustainability project on the theme of ‘Climate Change/Carbon Reduction’. The two are interlinked and those entering may focus on one or the other or both

The project undertaken should raise awareness to a particular problem within the given topic area and inspire action to respond to the growing awareness of the problem.


Select a topic and undertake some research and exploration into the current magnitude of the problem. They may work on projects on their own or as part of a group of not more than 4 people.

Submissions are in project form and must show your ingenious way of tackling the issue.

Your project work will go through a local stage first, followed by the district heats and then, if chosen, on to the national final.

The competition is open to environmentalists aged between 7 and 17.

Download the 2021/22 competition Information Pack and Poster and contact your local Rotary club for an entry form.
