Earth Day

Each year, NETL holds an Earth Day poster contest for children in elementary school. By emphasizing the importance of conserving energy, recycling, and improving air quality, the contest supports Departmental efforts to promote energy literacy and inform the next generation of energy leaders.

NETL received a ton of great entries this year from students in kindergarten through fifth grade. It was difficult to narrow down the best of the best, and while all the posters were outstanding, a few of these environmentally conscious kids really raised the creative bar! This year’s theme was “There is no Planet B.” The winning entries truly embodied the ideas of conserving of planet’s precious resources and protecting the environment.

Congratulations to those students who came in first, second, and third place, as well as the honorable mentions awardees in each grade!
