Our mission is to empower today’s High School Youth to generate ideas to solve for key local and global issues
Come up with an innovative, results-driven solution to one of the following issues:
Improving Water Quality
To be eligible for this challenge you can either team up with one or two other friends or do this individually. Everyone on your team must either be currently enrolled in high school or be of high school age.
This idea must relate to one of the six issues we previously outlined. Your proposal can take place anywhere, but we highly encourage you to think about serving your local community. The project must be implementable within a $5000 budget and be completed within 3 months.
To be eligible, you must obtain your parent’s or guardian’s permission. The consent form can be found in the application process.
Make a 3-5 minute video explaining your idea and how you plan on implementing it. Be sure to talk about the specific problem you plan to solve, where it takes place, and how you plan to overcome potential challenges given a $5,000 maximum budget. Your project will be judged not only on its creativity, but also on its likelihood for successful implementation.
To drive awareness and help raise funds to support the inquartanTEEN challenge, we would like all participants to post on Instagram and Tiktok a video of them putting one tablespoon of salt in a cup of water and drinking all at once and challenging 10 friends to do the same.
