“This grant will be used for the Energy Savings Challenge project that the EAST students plan to implement in our district. They will audit our school’s electricity usage. This team is creating a series of green initiative videos and a presentations to present to our faculty and staff to advocate for energy savings best practices, such as simply turning off lights, computers, and Promethean screens when not in use. This team plans to implement a challenge to other district schools to challenge them to see who can save the most on energy costs per square foot. They have already contacted a district administrator who will help them gather and analyze the monthly electricity bills for the schools. This team is also researching alternative energy sources as well. They have created several windmill and solar prototypes to help them study and better understand alternative energy options.  The funds will be used to purchase toner ink and poster paper for our large format laser plotter printer to create PSA materials to promote the Energy Savings Challenge project and to advocate for energy savings best practices. The grant will also be used to fund a field trip to the Ozarks Electric Solar Field that is being built in our community.”
