The Oakland Nature Preserve is inviting students to participant in the Youth Climate Project. 

The Youth Climate Project, in partnership with the Amon Family Foundation, "challenges high school juniors and seniors to get involved and learn about the role climate change is projected to play in Florida’s future and consider innovative ways we can begin to resolve its effects," according to the YCP website. 

The project is offering $20,000 to be awarded in scholarships for these students who have a strong passion for the environment. 

Schools that are included in the project this year include West Orange High School, Windermere High School, Ocoee High School, Olympia High School, Horizon High School, Legacy High School, Innovative Montessori High School and even homeschool students. 

Students who receive high scores on their research have the opportunity to earn between $1,000 and $5,000.
