“eesmarts’ Contest is Open to Students


NEW BRITAIN—Energize Connecticut has announced that registration is open for the 19th annual “eesmarts” student contest sponsored by Eversource and Avangrid, Inc., Southern Connecticut Gas and Connecticut Natural Gas.

For nearly two decades, the contest has invited Connecticut students in grades K-12 to answer grade-level-specific prompts on how they would promote energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable solutions.

This year, students in grades K-8 are asked to submit their entries in the form of a poster (grades K-2), limericks (grade 3), an outdoor billboard (grade 4), a fictional story with an energy-saving character (grade 5), a persuasive letter (grade 6), a comic strip (grade 7), or a social media post (grade 8).

Students in grades 9-12 are asked to produce a persuasive image in words or pictures, such as a short poem (125 words or less) or cartoon strip (12 cells or less) that advocates for an energy topic.

Entries will be evaluated based on scientific validity and concise and convincing imagery.

Contest registration is open until March 22. Project submissions are due on March 29. All work must be completed by the individual submitting the entry. No group projects are being accepted this year.

Finalists in all categories and grade levels will be honored at a special awards ceremony to be held in May. Winners will receive a certificate and an Amazon gift card.
