Students must register for eesmarts contest by March 22


NEW BRITAIN—Students wishing to participate in the 19th annual eesmarts contest must register by March 22.

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.

The contest is sponsored by Energize Connecticut, including Eversource and Avangrid, Inc. subsidiaries United Illuminating, Southern Connecticut Gas and Connecticut Natural Gas.

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), outdoor billboard (Grade 4), fictional story with an energy-saving character (Grade 5), persuasive letter (Grade 6), comic strip (Grade 7), or social media post (Grade 8).

Students in Grades 9-12 will produce an 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.

Submissions are due March 29. All work must be completed by the individual submitting the entry. No group projects are accepted.

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.
