RighTime® Partners with Temecula Education Foundation to Encourage Students to “Think Green"
Call for Entries: Temecula Valley Unified School District Students Invited to Participate in Energy Conservation Contest for a Chance to Win $500 Grand Prize
By: RighTime Home Services
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 in the Temecula Valley Unified School District to enter their best ideas on how to reduce the load on the energy grid and share the type of impact their idea could have on the community. The contest is open to all “green” ideas 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 important to our team at RighTime and giving back to our local schools and students is of the highest priority,” said Rick Cubas, regional manager of the RighTime Riverside Division. “Through the Think Green contest, we hope to continue bringing awareness about energy conservation to the younger generation, encourage our youth to think about the impact they can make on our environment and share those ideas with the community as a whole so we can continue to make impactful changes right here in Temecula Valley.”
To enter, students must submit an energy-saving idea in the form of a written essay, drawing or model. All entries must include a thorough explanation, the potential impact of the idea on the economy and/or community, and how the idea can be implemented throughout their community. Projects must be submitted to RTHSThinkGreen@
