Have you ever had an environmental project, or idea, but didn’t have the finances to get started? Planet Connect is here to help, giving high school students grants and green knowledge, so that they can positively impact their environment and local community.
It’s well documented that the youth of today are more environmentally knowledgeable and conscious than any other current generation. Knowing this, Planet-Connect.org wants to help foster the outstanding environmental ideas that so many teens already have.
Planet Connect’s newest round of Student Grant Applications has just been released, and we welcome all to apply. There will be many grant winners, giving you a great chance of receiving funding – especially if you believe your project can help the environment and local community. Isn’t the environment the winner, anyways? At Planet-Connect.org, we are happy to provide you with the funding to make a lasting difference. We hope to see your application.
Some previous winning project’s titles include:
- Water Monitoring Stations
- Educational Trail at Long Hunter State Park
- The Greening of the East Side Cafeteria
- Replanting a Garden for the Community
- Educating Latino Communities about Healthy Fish Consumption
- And many more

In addition to becoming a one-stop shop for info on Green Colleges, Careers and Grants, Planet Connect is also a social networking site, where high school students can share ideas, videos, comments and suggestions with each other. Hope to see you there!
Student Grant Application Deadline: November 15th, 2009
