Hawaiian Electric Company and the Hawaii State Department of Education celebrate the Home Energy Challenge’s 6th year and public schools on Oahu are encouraged to join! Prizes include $10,000, $6,000 and $3,000 to the schools whose families reduce the most energy use between October and March. It’s on a percentage scale so every school, big or small are on a level playing field. Students learn about conserving energy while helping the environment and their families.
Additionally, schools wishing to create an Energy Conservation Project can win an extra $1,000. Four prizes of $1,000 will be awarded!
The Coordinator's Notebook, including the official program rules and time line, can be found here.
