About the Challenge
Your students can improve their communities with the Fueling Education Student Challenge. Students are encouraged to solve the problems of tomorrow—today! CITGO is on a mission to inspire the next generation of innovators with the skills and knowledge to make lasting positive impacts on their communities.
Building Better Communities
Students may work individually or in groups of 2–4 to identify an everyday problem in their communities that aligns to one of four United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs). Students are asked to submit a 1–2 minute video discussing a problem in their community, the SDG it aligns to, and the solution to the problem. Students will use research, persuasion, organization, and communication to inform their solution to the problem. Be the first to know when the challenge opens!
