Applications are open for Kupu & Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation’s 2022-2023 Hawaiʻi Youth Sustainability Challenge (HYSC). HYSC is a program that empowers Hawaiʻi youth to create solutions to sustainability and conservation challenges facing their schools and communities. Students in grades 9-12 across Hawai’i can apply, and will receive funding for supplies, materials, and more (up to $1,000), plus coaching and training. There will also be 3 virtual HYSC Readiness Workshops happening in September, to better prepare potential applicants by providing support:
