ABOUT THE SLINGSHOT CHALLENGE

We believe that no problem is unsolvable and that great ideas come from ALL places. Our community of 13–18 year olds rose to the challenge and created 1-minute videos describing their ideas for solving environmental issues. We believe that, together, our ideas can lead to taking action to protect our planet and improve our future.
