The Fairchild Challenge is our award-winning, interdisciplinary, environmental science competition designed to engage students of diverse interests, abilities, talents and backgrounds to explore the natural world. The program has been recognized as a benchmark for exceptional STEM education and for empowering PreK – 12th grade students to become the next generation of scientists, researchers, educated voters, policy makers, and environmentally-minded citizens. Schools can participate in any number of the annual Challenges to accrue points throughout the year. Winning entries will receive awards and prizes.

Thank you for another inspiring year of the Fairchild Challenge!

2023-2024 Program Highlights:
– Engaged more than 76,000 PreK-12th grade students from 325 schools in South Florida
– Awarded schools more than $100,000 in prizes, equipment and garden grants
– Planted 1800 native endangered plants in schoolyards across the community
