Tenth annual US K-12 student energy competition
Submitted by National Energy Federation
The National Energy Foundation (NEF) and Johnson Controls (JCI), a global leader in providing energy efficient solutions in buildings, invite students from kindergarten through 12th grade to submit innovative ideas on energy and the environment to the Igniting Creative Energy (ICE) national competition. Students are invited to submit creative projects that demonstrate what people can do in their home, school, or community to become better stewards of the environment. Students may choose to express their ideas in any creative format including science projects, essays, stories, artwork, photographs, music, videos, websites, blogs, and multimedia projects. Recent service projects may also be submitted.
Entries will be accepted until March 4, 2011.
Since 2002, more than 15,000 students have participated for a chance to win national and state prizes. Bob Poulson, president of the National Energy Foundation says, "The Igniting Creative Energy Challenge aligns with our mission to cultivate and promote energy literacy and encourage future energy leaders. It provides participants an opportunity to make a positive impact in their communities through environmental and energy awareness." Each year, ICE challenges students to think creatively about ways to save energy and help conserve environmental resources and this year "ICE water" is an added topic.
