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.
