Frequently Asked Questions

NEED encourages all students and classrooms to get involved in energy outreach. 

Here are answers to some questions that come up often in the project preparation and submission process. If you have a question you don't see answered here, please email and we'll respond. If it would help your fellow competitors, we'll post it here, as well.

The Youth Awards Program is great for all schools—brand new to energy education, or veteran. Projects and outreach completed for the program provide opportunity for enrichment and engagement.  Submitting a project is also a wonderful opportunity to recognize student leadership in your classroom or afterschool club! We also welcome energy community projects from scouting troops!
