In this day and age, everyone’s responsible for doing something rad for Mother Earth — especially young people! That’s why Nick Cannon is teaming up with DoSomething.org — a nonprofit organization geared towards empowering teen activism — to launch the Increase Your Green campaign.

The eight-week program encourages teens to find innovative ways to green their classrooms and educate their friends about environmental issues. What’s more, Increase Your Green asks teens to find new ways of using technology for eco-awareness.

“DoSomething.org believes that teens can lead right now! We’re not selling them a rubber bracelet or special t-shirt. We want kids to take real steps to impact the issues they care about,” said Nancy Lublin, CEO of DoSomething.org.

Think you have a cool green idea? Visit DoSomething.org to register your school and submit a project. A panel of expert judges will review how well you “reduced waste, saved energy, got creative, and used technology to go green.” The winning school will receive up to $5,000 in environmental funding and a bunch of HP computers. Nice!
