TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Enbridge Gas Distribution is challenging students to find ways to save energy and compete against other schools to win cash for school activities.
Enbridge's Energy School Challenge – now in its third year – hopes to inspire students to learn more about energy efficiency and natural gas conservation in a fun, interactive and competitive way. The challenge has grown to include both elementary and secondary school students in Ontario.
Students from participating schools will help to save energy by participating in conservation activities; making positive behavioral changes associated with the school's energy usage; reporting on these activities; and measuring their progress. Students can then transfer their classroom knowledge to real-life scenarios at home.
Participating schools will have access to the program materials that will guide students through learning opportunities and activities, and they will receive points for each activity they complete.
There are six monetary prizes: the top elementary and secondary school with the most points will each receive $3,000; while the second and third place elementary and secondary schools will each receive $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.
The Challenge will run until May 4, 2019. More information and program registration details can be found at energyschoolchallenge.com.
