2018 Young Superhero for Earth Award
Dyson Chee is a homeschooled junior who resides in Honolulu, Hawaii. He believes that the world is everyone’s classroom and takes a project-based learning approach to fulfill many of his interests, which include ocean conservation, scientific research, and politics. While interning at a world-renowned coral research lab and the Hawaii State Capitol, he has also been working on a various range of issues related to ocean pollution by crafting a high-schooler led initiative, Project O.C.E.A.N., which supports and promotes environmental bills with fellow students, and actively engaging other youth.
Dyson ultimately hopes to inspire youth to be engaged and make a positive difference in the community, and his own work is greatly inspired by other young people. Dyson Chee currently serves as an ambassador for two non profit organizations: Philippe Cousteau’s EarthEcho International and Student Voice. In March 2018, he was awarded The National Billy Michal Student Leadership Award by The National WWII Museum for his strong record of volunteerism, school and community activism, and helping to implement creative solutions to recognized problems. Dyson is also one of the 2018 Ocean Heroes Champions. Learn More
