Know any clever energy conservation kids on The Rock?

December 3, 2015  By Anthony Capkun

December 3, 2015 – Teachers and students! TakeCharge has launched the 3rd annual Kids In Charge (KICStart) province-wide school contest that encourages participating students to express why they believe energy conservation is important, and to demonstrate what they do to save energy.

The contest has been expanded this year to include students of all grade levels (K-12), who are invited to submit entries in the form of a video, book, song, poster or other creative media that communicate energy savings. TakeCharge says the entries will be judged on appearance, creativity, accuracy of the message and effectiveness.
