ABOUT THE CONTEST
Since 2006, students and teachers have been making a difference in the eco health of our planet through the Lexus Eco Challenge, a STEM contest for grades 6–12.
In the Lexus Eco Challenge, student teams tackle environmental issues related to land, water, air, and climate, and create practical solutions while competing for amazing prizes—for eligible teachers, students, and schools, $500,000 in scholarships and grants awaits.
The contest is broken into three main parts. The Land & Water Challenge is first, followed by an Air & Climate Challenge. The Final Challenge is by invitation only, open to winners of the previous two challenges.
The Lexus Eco Challenge gets students involved in project-based learning, teamwork, and skill building as they identify an environmental issue that affects their community, use their critical-thinking and research skills to come up with a solution, and report on the results by way of an Action Plan. Teams of five to ten students look to the Challenge Planner for time-management guidance, and are led by one or two Teacher Advisors—who are full-time teachers employed at the school (not volunteers or parents)—to help their community while getting a chance to compete for scholarships and grants.
