Individual Student Registration

GenAction is a national community of young climate heroes from K-12. Together we are on a mission to inspire youth to take climate action. 

To win the contest, students are invited to submit a video that answers the question, "What does Climate Action mean to you?" Videos can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Bonus points for creativity like drawings, acting, poems, or acting out a climate action! 

In addition to entering the contest, the most engaging videos could be showcased nationally during our GenAction Earth Day 2024 campaign (with your permission of course). 

So, what does climate action mean to you? We can’t wait to find out!
