Ama Tu Playa—This NHS chapter was horrified by the trash that littered their community’s beaches, so they started an organization called “Ama Tu Playa,” aka Love Your Beach. Through the chapter’s passion, dedication, and enthusiasm, they have succeeded in engaging additional students and community members–40% of the participants in their beach cleanups are not chapter members. They have even attracted press attention to their efforts, raising awareness of the consequences of littering and preventing additional trash from ending up on the beach.

Each activism club at the school was invited to participate in the fair, promoting over a dozen different issues that the students care most about.
