The environment and the sustainability of our planet is an important topic, especially during this week’s Earth Day celebrations.  Across the globe, students, teachers, parents and community members are doing their part to hold events, create projects, educate and learn about the environment.

Some K-12 students who put outstanding effort into tackling environmental challenges are the participants of the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge. This national, environmental project-based sustainability challenge inspires K-12 students and offers them the tools to improve their schools, communities and the world.GoingGreen resized 600

In light of Earth Week, the winners of this competition were announced.  With the guidance of a teacher or mentor, these elementary, middle and high school students took an environmental issue and created a replicable green solution.  A panel of environmental advocates, science teachers and professors judged the competition and selected the winners based on each project’s creative and viable solution as well as community engagement.

The students were judged in categories based on grade level, with prizes for winning teams.  This challenge was an exciting way for students to take an interest in important environmental issues people are facing around the world.  These students’ projects can help affect change and make the world a better place.

The 2013 Challenge Winners consisted of the following schools:
