Join the Let’s Talk About Heat Challenge, launched by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and co-sponsors, to protect public health by raising awareness of health risks from extreme heat.
Extreme heat is an increasing problem for all parts of the United States and our changing climate means more parts of the country are likely to see extreme heat days in the future. Hotter temperatures are especially hard on children, older adults, outdoor workers and athletes, overburdened groups, and those already suffering from chronic illnesses.
The Let’s Talk About Heat Challenge seeks innovative solutions that show how communities of different sizes and in different parts of the country create effective communication strategies to inform and warn people of the risks of extreme heat and offer ways to keep safe during the hottest days.
This challenge will award a total of $120,000 in prizes for up to 10 of the most innovative communication strategies.
The deadline for applying to the Challenge is July 22, 2022.
