BRIGHT IDEAS ENERGY EFFICIENCY POSTER CONTEST HIGHLIGHTS STUDENT CREATIVITY AND ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
The future looks bright – just take a look at the masterpieces created by students in our service territory!
Children in kindergarten through 8th grade once again answered the call to communicate their ideas on energy efficiency in our Bright Ideas Poster Contest. With close to 300 entries, judging was no simple task. In the end, a panel of judges from PPL Electric Utilities and the National Energy Foundation narrowed the entries down to the winners in each category.
Teachers and students alike had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the contest.
“Congratulations to all the recipients who were recognized in today’s PPL poster contest,” said Jeff Hatala, principal of Moscow Elementary Center. “We take great pride at both North Pocono and Moscow Elementary Center when it comes to saving energy and helping our planet. Our students are active participants in energy conservation and that’s a credit to PPL. Our teachers look forward to the yearly programs and our families truly appreciate everything that PPL has to offer and share with our students!”
Four students in 2nd grade at Moscow Elementary Center were contest winners.
When asked to share what inspired them to enter the contest, many students referred to PPL’s energy efficiency education presentations they watched with their classmates.
“My siblings were wasting a lot of stuff,” said Emily W., from Mrs. Souders class at JE Fritz Elementary.
No matter what inspired these students, we’re happy that they are spreading awareness to be more energy efficient at home and encouraging their families to join them in this pursuit!
