ENTER THE LEXUS ECO CHALLENGE IN FOUR EASY STEPS.

This STEM competition for grades 6–12 is built on three challenges: Land & Water, Air & Climate, and an invitation-only Final Challenge. See below for how to enter.

  1. The Teacher Advisor (a full-time teacher employed by the school, not a volunteer) selects a team of 5–10 students.
  2. The team chooses an environmental topic that impacts your community—see the list of topics to choose from below.
  3. The team implements an Action Plan and reports on the results. Entries are submitted via PowerPoint or our online tool. Download the Action Plan template below.
  4. No team may participate more than once within the same challenge. Teams may enter up to two Action Plans—one for Land & Water and one for Air & Climate.
Ready to begin? Choose an environmental issue within the open challenge’s topic that affects your community. Then download the Action Plan or use our online entry system where you can save your work and come back later to complete your entry as you progress.
