Congratulations to DPS’ First Climate Champions!

The DPS Sustainability Team partnered with Denver’s Office of Climate Action, Sustainability and Resiliency on the first-ever Climate Champions Grant Program, which provides $225,000 in funding for DPS students to implement climate action projects in their schools.

The program is fully funded by Denver’s Climate Protection Fund. Thank you, Denver voters, for supporting the Climate Protection Fund – these projects that are a tangible result of that.

Fourteen projects across the district were awarded funding this cycle. Projects span from solar picnic tables to waste diversion to bike racks and more. We’re excited to see the real-world implementation of these creative solutions to climate change by our students!

Save the date: Climate Champions projects will be highlighted at the DPS Climate Summit on Friday, April 19. More info to come.
