Announcing our 2022 SCHOOL CONTEST WINNERS

takeCHARGE, a joint partnership between Newfoundland Power and Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro), is pleased to announce the winners of the 9th annual Kids in Charge (K-I-C Start) school contest.

The aim of the province wide contest is to raise awareness about the importance of saving energy among students. Students in kindergarten to grade twelve were invited to submit projects that showcase energy conservation in creative and effective ways for a chance to win. A number of creative entries were received again this year – over 30 submissions including videos, posters, and songs. Participants had a chance to win up to $2,500 for technology and other school supplies for their class or school.

“Congratulations to all participants in this year’s contest. It was great to see so many engaging, interactive and educational projects again this year”, says Stephanie Daley, Manager of Energy Solutions with Newfoundland Power. “We are always excited to offer this contest as part of our school program, and to help continue developing awareness with today’s youth about the importance of saving energy.”

“It is very encouraging to see our province’s youth so engaged in protecting their environment and energy conservation” says Carl Bishop, Manager, Customer Service, takeCHARGE, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro. “Participating in programs like Kids in Charge provides knowledge to help them become advocates for responsible energy use, and we’re very grateful to the teachers who helped deliver the program this year.”
