A Win for Energy Efficiency!

Update (May 2, 2013): We won! The Grand Prize!  National Grid will be giving us $2500 to help make our school more energy efficient. In addition, our middle school students will get a visit this spring from Andrew Ference of the Boston Bruins!  We couldn’t be more excited. Read on to check out the entry that won — a video made by our very own Global Leaders Club.


Sad EarthThe Global Leaders Club is a small but mighty group of 5th – 7th grade students who are working to take action on global issues. They recently entered the Energy Efficiency Face-Off Challenge! Students made the video below during our after school time on Mondays. They are trying to convince National Grid to give our school a grant to make our school more energy efficient.

BikeAs you’ll see in the video, they came up with several realistic ideas that would help Innovation Academy families save on gas usage. Even if we don’t win the money, these ideas are too good to let slip away. Do you agree? Do you have any resources to help us make them happen? Whether or not we “win” the contest, don’t you think the Global Leaders Club have made a dent in moving towards a more energy efficient school?
