Working with experienced social workers and other trained professionals, our middle and high school members will record interviews with refugees and immigrants to our area. Because we are a small town, we do not have all of the resources of larger metropolitan areas, and this might make transitions more difficult. We have contacts with families who have moved to our area from Yemen, China, Japan, and Burma and hope to learn more about various cultures from this experience.

We want to coordinate local efforts with Marshall's chapter of Half the Sky which works to promote, among other things, education about issues facing refugees and immigrants in our area. Students will work with experienced social workers and other trained professionals to interview refugees and make video documentaries to educate our community.

Eco Ryders will host four rounds of three week long comprehensive environmental justice classes. The classes will review issues that effect local Bronx youth (example... Lead poisoning, asthma rates, zoning laws) and review how these issues connect to the environment and to policy. Each week will go over an umbrella subject moving from Food&Health to the Environment and then to Policy. Each week will look at the umbrella subject from a local, national and then global perspective in the hopes of showing students how all these issues connect. In addition students will engage in hands on stewardship by helping to maintain community gardens and perform lead testing in community food gardens. As a reward and intensive for joining Eco Ryders students will be taught how to design their own skateboards for free. We like using skateboarding as a tool to attract interest because it also helps to promote healthy living.

Our group is traveling to the San Xavier Co-op Farm to volunteer and learn about the farm's beneficiary, the O'odham Nation. We will be harvesting local produce and learning about farming methods as well as local and native foods. The store nearby sells the harvest and all the proceeds go back to the Nation. We will also receive education about the Tohono O'odham.

We are two women from Mankato, MN on a mission to help connect jail inmates with unclaimed property. We work by searching inmate names on the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) website. Then we research the matches and see if they line up with our code of ethics. If we find a match who’s (alleged) crime(s) don’t outwardly object our code of ethics, then we send them a letter. In the letter we first tell them who we are and what we do. Then we tell them that their name matched a name on the NAUPA website and include the last known address of that person. We tell them how to designate a POA to claim the funds while they’re incarcerated, if this is them. We also give them information about NAUPA and tell them what they can do to help further our cause. We call ourselves Million Dollar Redistribution because it is our dream to indirectly redistribute a million dollars from unclaimed properties to Minnesota jail inmates through the information we provide. We help inmates to help themselves. In addition to helping the individuals through a difficult time, we also possibly lower recidivism rates by letting inmates know that there’s people on the outside who care about them.

Students will use mathematical knowledge, in measurement, ratio, and geometry to design and build their own vertical gardens. In addition, they will address 6th grades standards of Engineering and Design and Materials and Tools. Furthermore, the vertical gardens will provide exposure to alternate food production options to our students and family while simultaneously producing crops for the school to use in the cafeteria and farmer’s market.
