New Britain, CT - Connecticut students, do you have a bright idea? The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, in partnership with The Connecticut Light & Power Company and The United Illuminating Company, is proud to announce the eighth annual eesmarts contest for students in grades K-12. The eesmarts program is an energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy education initiative that annually invites Connecticut students to showcase their “energy smarts” about saving energy, efficient and renewable energy technologies and sustainability through various media forms.

“Engaging Connecticut students early on will not only assist in developing tomorrow’s future scientists, engineers, and green workforce but will also help to position our state as a national leader in energy efficiency,” said Dan Esty, Chairman, Energy Efficiency Board. “It’s great to see the creativity and innovative ideas that our next generation has about using energy wisely and leading by example.”

The eesmarts contest requests that students answer grade-level specific prompts regarding efficient and renewable energy technologies in the form of a poster, limerick, news article, song lyrics, essay, speech, report, play or TV script and an open letter format.

All participants will receive recognition for their submissions, and winners for each grade level will be honored at a special awards ceremony on May 22, 2012 at the State Capitol. First prize winners will receive an iPad, and second prize winners will receive a Kindle. Third place and honorable mention will also receive prizes.

The contest is open to all students in Connecticut, and the deadline for entries is April 20, 2012. For more information about the contest, please visit
