EnlightenSC Sponsors Turning on the Lights Contest

Fifth-grade students across South Carolina are invited to write and illustrate a children’s book that discusses the history of electrification in the state. Entries must include information about electric cooperatives and the impact electricity has made on lives. Entries are due Sunday, December 31. The contest is sponsored by EnlightenSC—an energy education program developed by educators for the consumer-owned electric cooperatives in S.C.

The program was created to help teachers better access energy-related information and activities for classroom activities. Resources are designed to get young people excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics—STEM subjects. The program has expanded to include a summer graduate course for educators at no charge. EnlightenSC also sponsors the S.C. 4-H Engineering Challenge—a competition for S.C. students.
