Through this challenge, the administration seeks to encourage career-oriented skills and environmental stewardship. High school students enrolled in grades 9-12 in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York are eligible. This applies to public, private, magnet, charter, and home school students.

The University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute and Minnesota Sea Grant partnered to offer a free webinar supporting those interested in accepting the challenge.
