For Immediate Release
K-12 School Energy Conservation Contest Winners
Between March 23 and April 27, 2015, schools around Saskatchewan took on the challenge of saving energy, water, and reducing waste. Schools made videos, presentations, took photos, and submitted descriptions of what they did to be entered to win up to $1000 for their school.
The two $1000 winning projects were from Argyle School in Regina with their campaign Gators Go Green, and Churchill High School in La Ronge with Waste Not Want Not. Argyle School received their award on Thursday, May 21, and Churchill High School will receive theirs on June 24. Two additional schools received a trip to the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and eight schools received $200 each for their energy saving efforts.

The 25 Acts of Energy Conservation contest was organized by the Saskatchewan Environmental Society and the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and was sponsored by SaskEnergy, SARCAN, and The Cooperators. The contest was supported with daily announcements, conservation ideas, and lesson plans. Teachers and students made the month between Earth Hour and Earth Day a time to recognize environmental issues and find practical ways to reduce their impact.
