Students Successfully Complete Fremont Green Challenge Competition

Student participants Fremont Green Challenge

In the seven weeks leading up to Earth Day 2018, more than 50 youth across all five Fremont high schools competed in teams to sign up new households to the City’s Fremont Green Challenge platform. The platform provides information on reducing emissions, conserving water, and saving money by going green.

Collectively, the students earned over 200 service learning hours and signed up 1,427 households! The top two teams, Green Go Getters from American High School and Ex-Static for Change from Mission San Jose High School, will be awarded first place prizes and all participating teams will receive zero waste kits.

Supported by the City of Fremont and the Fremont Unified School District, the competition was organized by FIERCE, a District-wide environmental club led by Fremont high school students with the goal of fostering interest in sustainability and the environment for youth and the Fremont community. Students first met in February at the kick-off Sustainability Dinner, hosted in partnership with StopWaste, where they learned about the importance of consumption habits and organized teams from there. Students then engaged community members on the Challenge and the many ways households can reduce their impact without sacrificing their lifestyle or wallet.

Students were recognized for their efforts at the Joint Fremont City Council/ Fremont Unified School District Board of Education Meeting on May 7. An additional celebration will occur at City of Fremont offices on Friday, June 1 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. View the presentation.

The City is pleased to partner with FUSD students who are passionate about sustainability and motivated to take climate action into their own hands. With the help of these students, Fremont will become a healthier and greener community!
