Coventry Students Participate in eesmarts Contest

Paula Sandahl

Coventry Public Schools students participated in the eesmarts™ Annual Student Contest. eesmarts™ is an energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy learning initiative funded by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund. The vision of eesmarts is to facilitate students' understanding of science, math and technology related to clean, renewable energy and electricity in order to create an energy-efficient ethic among all school-age students in Connecticut. The annual eesmarts™ contest invites students to answer grade level-specific prompts regarding how they would promote energy efficiency, renewable energy and reducing their carbon footprints to their families, fellow students and schools.

Among the different category prompts for grades K-12, Coventry Grammar School K-2 students participated by creating a poster showing how to conserve energy in their homes or at school. Students did this in poster and 3D art form. We are proud to announce that the following students were chosen as finalists:

Second Grade - Alina Casado placed 3rd
Kindergarten - George Conklin placed 2nd

In the grade 6 category, students were tasked to write a persuasive speech to the Connecticut Energy and Technology Committee about how our state can become more energy efficient. In a full sweep, CNH students placed in each level!
Capt. Nathan Hale School:

Taryn Weber – placed 3rd
Evan Zajac – placed 2nd
Lillyanna Hand – placed 1st

Students were recognized in a virtual ceremony and received a prize pack.
