Denver 2014 Solutions:

I challenge you, the students in Denver, CO, to create a way of inspiring your classmates, and students around the country, to learn about the Bill of Rights, its history, and the way that it relates to your lives. Inspire them to apply their knowledge of it to be active citizens by choosing a current debate involving the Bill Of Rights and making an argument about what liberty means to you today. Be creative in helping students learn about where the rights listed in the Bill of Rights came from and how they evolved over time.

Our team has decided to focus on the ocean, because no matter where you are in the world, you affect the ocean as much as the ocean affects you, habits must be formed early both to decrease pollution and to conserve water; take the plunge to use less plastic, conserve water and create a ripple effect in your community.
