Division Selection - Next question will allow you to choose a division.
GROW PASCO DOWNTOWN: Through this challenge students will focus on economic development for downtown Pasco. Opportunities may increase cultural awareness focus on Pasco’s uniqueness, help build Pasco’s economy, increase utilization of existing facilities, and help enliven Pasco. Some possibilities include upgrading residential options to attract diversity, develop arts and culture institute and commission, create mixed use development on the waterfront, and your own ideas. The possibilities are endless!
BOOST RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES: A healthy and vibrant community provides for the social, economic, and recreational needs of its members. As a part of this group, you will work to find solutions to provide facilities and programs to engage community members of all ages, and impact their quality of life. Examples include: build and develop an aquatic park, improve the walk and ride-ability in community, and increase socialization activities within neighborhoods.
ECO/RECYCLING: Would you like to be a part of the challenge to develop creative solutions targeted at reducing the community’s carbon footprint? Students will be encouraged to explore existing opportunities and “green” initiatives already available to the community around recycling. These efforts may include: communication campaigns; cost comparisons; research on the benefits of recycling and making environmentally friendly choices; exploring opportunities both in Pasco Schools and the community at large, or reduction in the consumption of energy and natural resources. Recycling helps protect our environment both locally and globally. Be a part of creating a healthy and sustainable environment in the Tri-Cities.
SUCCESS IN SCHOOL: If reaching the 24 credit goal is “success” in high school then how do we help all students achieve that? In this challenge, barriers to success that need consideration are peer-pressure, transportation, family issues, homelessness, non-engaging teachers, and any other complications that might apply to reaching the 24 credit goal. In this division you will work with peers to come up with solutions to these dilemmas. The outcomes of this division could change our community altogether. This could help thousands of students reach this 24 credit goal for graduation with greater success for life.
SERVICE: Impact your community by creating a unique approach to social change!! The community you live in is looking for a diverse and holistic approach to problems such as teen pregnancy, mental health, support services for foster children, and an avenue to encourage those who resist change. Help be a part of leaving a lasting impact and legacy for the community you live in.
