The Earth Prize competition has announced its 2023 scholars. 

An environmental sustainability competition for teenagers across the globe, The Earth Prize recognizes students and schools with the best solutions to accelerate positive change and innovation in environmental sustainability. 

The Earth Prize, an initiative of the Geneva-based Earth Foundation, aims to challenge, mentor, and inspire students to spark real change by designing their own environmental sustainability projects, products, organizations, or enterprises. 

With hundreds of submissions each year, The Earth Prize shortlists a number of teams who have achieved outstanding standards. These teams are given The Earth Prize Scholars distinction.    

The top ten finalists will be chosen from the group of scholars. The Earth Prize’s Adjudicating Panel selects solutions with the most potential to solve environmental issues.
