Energy Week

  1. Make sure to pick a week that works well with your school. If possible you could coordinate with national Energy Awareness Month in October, but any week during any month will work.
  2. There are many things that you can incorporate into an Energy Week. You could have your town’s Mayor come to your school and sign a Proclamation announcing that this week is Energy Week. You could have Energy Dress Days, do a carpool to school contest, have an alternative transportation day, have your student body sign a Declaration of Energy Independence, plant trees, and the list goes on and on.
  3. Make sure to start advertising as soon as you know when the energy week will take place. The best way to get people to participate is by letting them know exactly what will be going on.
  4. A good end to your Energy Week is to have a recycled sculpture building contest. During the week have students and teachers bring recycled cans, paper, boxes etc. and during the last day of energy week have a contest between grade levels to see who can build the best recycled art sculpture. Don’t forget to recycle the entries when the contest is over.
  5. An Energy Week is a great way to get the word out about all of the different types of energy that are available in the world today. Another thing to keep in mind is to try to get as much information out about the different types of energy that are available, especially if you have some of them in your community.
