Service Learning Challenge is designed to engage students in public service that addresses real-life community issues.

In this challenge the team was asked to identify, design, carry out and evaluate a project that addresses a need in a real community. The team created a video presentation that includes a podcast and a commercial, included a cliffhanger and a quirky character, integrate information about the project into the video presentation and created and presented two Team Choice Elements that show off the team’s interests, skills, areas of strength and talents.

Global Finals will be hosted virtually June 7-15.
