A+ for Energy at a Glance

What makes a winning project?

A focus on energy! Consider how the project will enhance student understanding of Canada’s energy landscape including energy efficiency, conservation, and our future. Special consideration will be given to projects that track energy conservation and greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Make connections beyond your classroom! Share not only the number of students that will be directly and indirectly impacted but also how the project will support partnerships outside of the school and how you will highlight the program externally.

Get creative and think outside the box! There are multiple ways that energy education can be incorporated into multiple grade levels, subject areas, and school-based projects.

The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s M├ętis people have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for the stewardship of our natural resources, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
