Let’s Talk About Heat Challenge

EPA and several co-sponsors have launched the Let’s Talk About Heat Challenge, a national competition to identify innovative and effective communication strategies that inform people of the risks of extreme heat and offer ways to keep safe during the hottest days.

Winners will share suitable messages and strategies used to reach target audiences with those messages, and proposed measures of effectiveness. The challenge sponsors hope to identify ways to monitor the effectiveness of heat risk campaigns and messages and share the best practices with communities across the nation.   

The challenge will award up to 10 prizes from a total prize pool of $120,000.
