5 Maryland Schools to Win $1,000 through PowerSavers Challenge
Schools covering grades 6-12 all across Maryland are eligible to enter the Maryland PowerSavers Challenge by registering and competing against other schools to get the most energy-savings pledges OR create the coolest video about saving energy - or both!
Students can help their schools win the challenge by collecting energy saving pledges or by creating a winning energy efficiency outreach video, and schools that do both activities double their chances of winning. Students at participating schools in grades 6-12 will receive access to flipped lessons on how to perform an energy audit at their school. Additional resources for the challenege can be found on the Maryland PowerSavers Challenege website.
The competition runs February 16 through April 15, with registration to enter the contest closing on April 11.
Each participating school will be in the running to win one of five $1,000 prizes, an energy diagnostic toolkit, and a full day of student energy audit training. Representatives from winning schools will also receive a behind the scenes tour of the USA Science and Engineering Festival April 26-27.
