The fifth annual contest is sponsored by RighTime® Home Services, a residential heating, air conditioning and plumbing company in Riverside, and the Temecula Education Foundation (TEF). Winners will be announced on April 29 at the 7th Annual Taste of Temecula Valley.
It was back in 2011 when theTemecula Valley School District (TVUSD) took its first deep dive into the benefits of reducing energy consumption. Like many in the education sector,the district faced budget and funding challenges. Lowering energy costs became a key area of interest for the school district in its push to save money where it could.
Southern California Edison reported on the district as an energy management success story, saying the area earned $5 million in savings since 2011.
RighTime Home Services and the TEF, an organization committed to providing exceptional learning opportunities for the community and its students, are encouraging kindergarten through 12th grade students to enter their best creative ideas for the Think Green Contest. All “green” ideas will be accepted during the contest, running March 10 through April 15, and will be divided into the following categories based on grade level; elementary school (K-5th grade), middle school (6th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade). The high school student with the winning idea will be awarded a $500 cash prize; the middle school and elementary school finalists will be awarded $300 and $200 cash prizes, respectively. In addition, RighTime Home Services will match the total prize earnings with a $1,000 donation to the TEF.
“Community involvement is a huge priority for our team at RighTime and we’re thrilled to announce the fifth annual Think Green Contest here in the Temecula Valley,” said Melissa Cisneros, project manager for RighTime Riverside. “Through the Think Green contest, we hope to continue bringing awareness about energy conservation, while encouraging students to recognize the impact they can make on our environment. We have received so many incredible ideas over the last four years and have high expectations for what’s in store this year!”
