Stewardship Project Application

Announcing the 2020 WCSU Environmental Stewardship Competition for Seventh Graders!


A student competition focused on Environmental Stewardship, sponsored by WCSU Finding Our Way STEM Outreach Office.



What is Environmental Stewardship?

We all share the responsibility of caring for our environment. Stewardship is how we take responsible action to care for our environment. Finding Our Way exposes you to environmental conservation and sustainable practices that teach us to live in harmony with the planet.

Stewardship is the act of making wise use of the natural resources provided by the earth. Cutting back on our personal water usage, not allowing fertilizers and plastics to get into our watersheds, protecting marine animals from these hazards, trash clean-ups, invasive plant removal, and building buffer gardens are all examples of environmental stewardship.

Environmental stewardship is the focal point of the winter/spring portion of the Finding Our Way Program. Our attention turns to devising and refining our stewardship proposals and put them into action. The links on this page provide the forms and framework for your stewardship project and for the competition you will enter.
