ComEd Celebrates Earth Week by Helping Students Get Smart about Energy Management

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

ComEd’s $10,000 Earth Month Challenge is underway and helping approximately 6,000 students in northern Illinois learn about smart meters and how they can help their families better manage electricity usage, become more energy efficient and save money. Seventeen schools within ComEd’s smart meter deployment area have signed on to participate in the competition in which students, with assistance from their parents and teachers, earn points for their school for completing tasks and extra credit activities. ComEd will award a total of $10,000 in prize money to the top five schools, including a $5,000 grand prize for the top-ranked school along with an end-of-the-year ice cream party. To kick-off the Earth Month Challenge, ComEd representatives visited each of the participating schools to host an event including games and prizes for the students. The Challenge runs throughout Earth Month (April), and the top five performing schools will be announced in May. The ComEd $10,000 Earth Month Challenge Contestants:
