Clean energy and climate writing and video contests for youth in Mass.
Submitted by Chris Mason
The Imagining Tomorrow Alternate Energy
Futures contest on clean energy and global climate is running again this
- Writing Contest (for high school age students)
- Video Contest (for high school age students)
- Science Fair Awards (at middle and high school events)
Contests provide fun and educational ways to enhance classroom learning as an assignment, an extra-credit project, or just as an independent project from your students. We hope that you will encourage them to participate.
WRITING AND VIDEO CONTESTS
Cash awards for twenty-five finalists, with all finalists and their teachers invited to the awards reception May 11 at the Genzyme Center in Cambridge, MA. Please note that student collaborations are more than welcome on both writing and video entries. Deadline for entries is March 18, 2007, so there is still plenty of time-we look forward to your entries.
CLEAN ENERGY SCIENCE FAIR AWARDS
at Massachusetts' middle and high school regional and state science fairs-cash awards at high school level.

The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association and Imagining Tomorrow are presenting these programs in part with funding from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative's Renewable Energy Trust.
