For the past eight months, Denver Public Schools (DPS) high school students have created, implemented and sustained solutions to issues their school communities face as part of Challenge 5280. The students have reached the end of their project timelines and will present their innovative solutions to some of Denver’s and the nation’s biggest social challenges.
Challenge 5280 is an annual DPS initiative for student groups to engage with community members, organizations and companies to brainstorm root causes, strategies and solutions to education justice issues. The ultimate goal of the challenge is to create positive change in the community and the world while students gain leadership skills.
