You may work in a group if required by the nature of your project -- for example, presenting to other classes or giving testimony before the school board. But I will need to see evidence that each member of the group has participated.
You must use at least five different sources in your project. At least two of these must be sources you found on your own.
The final draft of your project must demonstrate clear ideas and support, and it needs to be "correct." No spelling, grammatical, or other errors on the final draft. (People outside of schools are always looking for ways to make students look ignorant; let's not give them any ammunition.)
Remember to go deep with this. Point out specific conditions that need changing, but also remember to talk about the deeper causes of these problems.
