Energize Connecticut is accepting submissions for its 18th annual eesmarts™ student contest. 

The contest is open to Connecticut students in grades kindergarten to 12 and the topics are focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability solutions. Submissions must be received by March 31. 

Students from kindergarten to 8th grade are assigned grade-specific topics and asked to submit their entries in the form of a poster (Grades K-2), narrative (Grade 3), letter to the Principal (Grade 4), children’s picture book (Grade 5), persuasive TikTok (Grade 6), anime or comic strip (Grade 7), or a public service announcement for social media (Grade 8).

Students in grades nine to eleven are asked to propose a community-based project to address an energy-related issue and may work in groups of up to three members. Students competing in the grade 12 category will produce a persuasive infographic that advocates for energy conservation and alternative energy sources.

Finalists in all categories and grade levels will be honored at a special awards ceremony to be held in May 2023. The winners of the contest will receive a certificate and an Amazon gift card. The winning team’s school will receive funding to help make their proposed project a reality.
