Wind for Change is a classroom education program and fundraiser for Cool Kids Campaign coordinated by Meteorologist Justin Berk. Justin will visit your school, teach your class a complimentary science lesson about weather, and coordinate a wind speed fundraising contest among students. His presentation is easily adjusted for various ages, and can be tailored to emphasize current classroom topics. Justin finds this program works best with grades K-8. In just 5 years of conducting Wind For Change, Justin has raised over $102,230 for Cool Kids Campaign as kids collect pledges for their wind speed!!
...
Two weeks before Justin visits your school, teachers explain the Wind For Change contest to students and ask for participants in a wind speed contest. Participating students then take home a Wind Speed Pledge Sheet and solicit pledges from families and friends. Sponsorships start at 50¢ per mph. Students can also collect a flat donation of $5 or more to participate.
Part 1 of the visit - The Science Lesson Justin's 45-minute science presentation covers a wide range of weather-related concepts. Certainly his most popular segment with students is extreme weather, interspersed with videos, photos and Justin's narrative of safety tips and forecasting techniques. Justin keeps his slide deck infused with current events, including pictures of satellite launches and recent storms.
...
After the wind speed contest, Justin announces which student collected the most pledges and who recorded the highest wind speed. Every participant is presented with a personal certificate with their name and highest speed.

How to invite Justin to your school
Justin prefers Wednesdays (but is flexible) and a start time between 10am and 11am. Email WindForChange@coolkidscampaign.org with your name, school, phone number, and date and time you're considering. Justin is not able to teach individual lessons in one day and prefers an assembly format, so that all students from various grades can hear the science lesson and participate in the wind contest.

Justin is obsessed with snow. He never hid his passion in nearly 20 years on TV, and doesn't today: "Faith-in-the-Flakes"
Justin got his degree in meteorology from Cornell University and worked his first two TV jobs in Syracuse and Binghamton NY. That's a lot of years in the snow-belt, but still not enough. In that time, he transitioned from skiing to snowboarding. The early years he spent as much time as possible between Greek Peak, Hunter, and Windham Mountains in NY. Stowe, Stratton, and Killington in VT.
In 1997, Justin moved to Maryland to work on TV in Baltimore. Over the next 14 years he became the first meteorologist in the region to achieve the CBM seal from the American Meteorological Society, was named Best in Baltimore by Baltimore Magazine 3 times, co-founded a radio show called Weather Talk, and taught weather classes at Stevenson University. He also has written for Examiner.com and grew his Facebook following to over 50,000. He won The Mobbies Award for best Facebook Page in Maryland for the past 2 years, including a Readers Choice Award in 2013.
Covering the Mid Atlantic Region includes his backyard in southern Pennsylvania. During the winter of 2013, Justin started a video series with Snowtime, Inc. filming weekly updates from Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail. His other favorite spots include Seven Springs, Wisp, and of course Snowshoe, WV.
