Alternative Energy Contest On for High School Students

U.S. high schoolers in the U.S. may submit writing or video about energy issues, policies, or technologies in a national competition, Imagining Tomorrow: Alternate Energy Futures. based on writing and video.

“It is clear that young people are very aware of all aspects of the energy issues that we face,” said Mary Essary, program director, “and this program gives them an opportunity to become better educated as well as to envision and express the impact the choices that we make today will have on their own future.” Via regional or state contests, winners may advance to the national level, with $10,000 committed in cash awards. All entries must supply a description of the conceptual starting point, citing relevant references and statistics. All entries are due March 31, 2007. Imagining Tomorrow: Alternate Energy Futures, a program from the Massachusetts-based nonprofit called The Foresight Project, is in partnership with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Society (NESEA). Winning stories from last year’s pilot program are online (use last link below).
