America’s Home Energy Education Challenge

Website:

Deadline:

America’s Home Energy Education Challenge (AHEEC) is a new nationwide student competition to help families save money by saving energy at home. AHEEC engages students in elementary and middle schools to make smarter energy choices that reduce U.S. reliance on fossil fuels and put money back in their parents’ pockets. This initiative aims to educate America's youth about the benefits of energy efficiency, motivate students to play a more active role in how their families use energy, and help families across the country reduce their energy bills. Participating schools compete for more than$200,000 in prizes distributed at the regional and national levels of the competition. Official registration for the Challenge ends October 7, 2011. Students, teachers, and principals are encouraged to register to participate at http://homeenergychallenge.org/. Participation in AHEEC is broken into two parts, the Home Energy Challenge and theEnergy Fitness Award. Each is designed to encourage students to learn about science and home energy savings.
