Shell Canada and Canadian Geographic bring back Canadian Energy Diet Challenge
Canadian students compete to win prizes while learning to understand energy
Over 1,200 classrooms across Canada are about to embark on the Classroom Energy Diet Challenge (CEDC), a three-month long national energy efficiency competition to help youth understand where energy comes from, how it’s used and how to manage energy resources.
The competition is divided into three streams with many prizes: Classroom Challenge, where registered classes from kindergarten to grade 12 complete in 25 energy-focused, curriculum-based lesson plans, the Video Contest, where students create a video teaching other Canadians how to reduce energy footprint and new in 2014: an opportunity for students to complete a second video showing why their school deserves to win a grand prize of $10,000 to reduce the carbon footprint of their school.
