The NSHSS Foundation has partnered with the Captain Planet Foundation (CPF) to encourage environmental stewardship among high school students globally through the Earth Day Award competition.  Prizes of $500 are awarded to high school students in recognition of environmental stewardship, leadership and volunteerism expressed through the Earth Day projects submitted for the competition. The project was launched in 2013 and is open to all high school students annually.

Applicants are asked to submit details about an environmental project that they are currently working on, or one that will be initiated for Earth Day in their home, school, and/or community.  Requirements include a written explanation of the project, including the process, its impact, and how it will impact the future.  Submissions should be supplemented with a creative component, such as a video, painting, drawing, or collage that highlights the project.  The competition is open to all high school students.
