Energize Connecticut, in partnership with Eversource and AVANGRID, Inc. subsidiaries United Illuminating, Southern Connecticut Gas and Connecticut Natural Gas, is accepting entries for its 13th annual eesmarts student contest, a competition encouraging students to create projects about energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability.

The contest is open to Connecticut students in grades K-12 and college. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 28.

“Through this contest and the eesmarts program, we are able to educate and raise awareness among our youth about the importance of making smart energy choices and its lasting effect on our environment,” CT Energy Board chair Taren O’Connor said in a press release. “Over the past 13 years, our students, with the help of our educators, have built hydroponic gardens and envisioned a society where energy-efficiency is the norm. We are excited to see how our students change the world this year.”
